Deciduous

Deciduous plants are those that lose their foliage for part of the year. In most cases, the foliage loss coincides with the incidence of winter in temperate or polar climates, but some plants lose their leaves during dry seasons in arid climates[?].

The opposite of deciduous is evergreen.
