Deer-Resistant Plants


This is a list of plants that we carry or have carried in the past that tend to be more deer-resistant. This does not mean deer-proof, and even the plants on this list will get nibbled on from time to time. Deer browsing depends upon the available food source for that year, time of year, location, deer species and simple curiosity. The only sure way to keep the deer from nibbling on your plants is to put up a tall enough fence.
