Spring has finally arrived and seems to be sticking around! Everyone is ready to plant! One of the most frequent questions we are asked is "what can I plant that is deer and rabbit resistant?"
As we know, wild animals are just that - wild! There are no guarantees as to what they might like to sample on a given day. Often, they pluck a plant from the ground or planter, just to decide it tastes terrible, and then spit it out.
But- with some determination, vigilance, a bit of trial and error, and ALOT of patience - you CAN create a lovely landscape.
Here is a list of plants (all perennials) that are most likely to provide success:
Snow Drop Anemone
Silver Mound Sage
Japanese Painted Fern
Basket of Gold
Black Eyed Susan
Periwinkle - Vinca
Hummingbird Flower (Zauschneria)
Creeping Oregon Grape Holly
Engleman Ivy (Virginia Creeper)
As a reminder - some of these are toxic - wild animals leave them alone for that reason. Your domestic pets may not have the same wisdom, so please do your research to keep them safe if they like to eat vegetation.
