Deer Resistant Perennials

Keep The Deer Away With These Natural Plant Defenses

These plants have natural defenses that help deter deer. For example, many deer-resistant perennials are very fragrant, an attribute that is highly appealing to gardeners, but a huge turn-off to deer, as well as rabbits, woodchucks, and other critters. If you have high deer pressure in your neighborhood, these plants are a great place to start for designing a garden that stays off the spring menu.
