I believe it’s evergreen.

Looks like it could be a photinia to me. Photinias are evergreen and usually have red leaves on the new growth hence thier common name 'red robin'.

Welcome to permies, Jonathan! I concur with Henry. "Red Robin" is a common popular name. We've got several here and those leaves and flower clusters look very familiar. Dense, hard wood and the leaves are a good livestock fodder.
I need a new interior decorator. This tiny ad just painted every room in my house purple.
