The most recent discovery by NASA's Perseverance Rover on Mars reveals that, 

Even though it could be called the Red planet, there are green areas as well, according to an article by TweakTown. 

Scientists of Purdue University have analysed data from the rover, which has found olivine grains in the surface of the Martian surface,

Leading to some green regions within the otherwise interminable and red Martian sand.

When Perseverance first arrived at Mars' Jezero crater, scientists had hoped to discover a myriad of minerals in red colour. 

They also anticipated the crater would contain sedimentary rocks. However, instead, they discovered several volcanic rocks.

Furthermore, the majority of them were made of large olivine grains, a mineral that is one of the richest in the world.

They're so plentiful that they constitute more than 50% of the mantle's upper layer. 

They also colour several Hawaiian beaches with a shade of green. This rover has been studying samples as old as four billion years and is relatively in good condition.
