Deer Resistant Perennials

Keep the deer away with fragrant perennials

Most deer-resistant plants are very fragrant, an attribute that is highly appealing to gardeners, but a huge turn-off to deer (rabbits, woodchucks, and other critters often feel the same). If you have high "deer pressure" in your neighborhood, the flowers listed here are a great place to start when designing a garden that will succeed without being munched on.
