Deer Resistant Plants

This is a list of some more common deer resistant plants. These plants will usually not be disturbed, but please note that deer vary from location to location and herd to herd, and a very hungry deer may cause damage to most any of these plants.

Most damage done to deer resistant plants occurs within a short time of planting.
Use deer repellents to discourage initial browsing.
