What are Deer Resistant Plants?

These plants are rarely or minimally damaged by deer. It is important to note that when deer are hungry they will eat just about any plant, especially tender new growth, buds, and blooms. Deer often avoid plants that are strongly fragrant like herbs and junipers, have thorns like barberry, prickly leaves like holly, or needle-like foliage like pine.

The deer resistant plants with the highest deer resistance ratings are American Holly, Barberry, Blue Fescue, Boxwood, Butterfly Bush (Buddleia), Catmint, Daphne, Dwarf Alberta Spruce, Ferns, Japanese Pieris, Japanese Plum Yew, Juniper, Lavender, Lyme Grass, and Nandina, Pampas Grass, River Birch, Rosemary, Switchgrass, and Viburnum.
