Deer Resistant

Deer will sample almost anything, especially in the spring and late fall. Plants can only be considered deer resistant, not deer proof. Deer rely on their sense of smell to determine what to eat, and will always investigate freshly dug dirt. A wide variety of strong odors, especially with any new plantings, might confuse deer enough to cause them to leave your area to investigate the neighbors. We make no guarantees about what deer may eat, except that tomorrow it may be different (deer do not read lists, but for additional information, click on Rutgers Agricultural Experiment and UGA Department of Horticulture).

Deer generally do not like the follow varieties:

Achillea | Acorus | Ajuga | Ardisia | Aquileqia | Aster | Astilbe | Baptisia | Brunnera | Butterfly Bushes | Calamagrostis | Campanula | Carex | CeratostigmaCoreopsis | Delosperma | Delphinium | Dianthus | Dicentra | Echinacea | Euonymus | Euphorbia | Ferns | Gaillardia | Geranium | Hakonechloa |Helleborus | Heuchera and Heucherella | Hibiscus | HypericumIris | Lamiastrum | Lamium | Lantana | Lavender | Leucanthemum |Miscanthus | Monarda | Muehlenbeckia | NepetaOphiopogon | Panicum | Papaver | Pennisetum | Peonies | Phlox | Platycodon | Rudeckia | Salvia | SantolinaSchizachyrium | Sedum | Stokesia | Thymus | TrachelospermumVeronica | Vinca
