Leaf

Regardless of climate, tree leaves maintain an internal temperature of 70 degrees F (21 degrees C), which is the perfect temperature for photosynthesis.

It is estimated that your chances of finding a four-leaf clover on the first try are 1 in 10,000.

Evergreen trees will not lose their leaves in the fall like deciduous trees. Their leaves, also called needles, are covered with a thick wax. This wax protects the inner components of the needles, preventing them from freezing.

Leaves turn yellow and orange because those pigments are present year round, you just can't see them until their chlorophyll breaks down.


The leaves of the Ficus religiosa tree move continuously even when the air around is still and no wind is blowing. This phenomenon can be explained due to the long leaf stalk and the broad leaf structure.

A lotus leaf is able to self-clean by causing water to bead up and collect dirt on its ultrahydrophobic surface
