Deer Resistant Plants

These deer-resistant plants are seldom eaten or damaged beyond repair by deer. When deer are given a choice, they will usually opt for an alternative to the plants listed here. Examples would be Hostas or Tulips, which taste like candy to a deer and are almost always eaten when deer are present. Unlike Hostas or Tulips, the plants listed here are usually not their first choice. Remember though,  when extremely hungry, deer will eat almost anything.
