Plants Deer Avoid

The plants listed below are varieties that deer do not particularly favor.  Remember, if the deer are hungry.they will eat just about anything! They tend to dislike anything that has sticky or cottony leaves.

The varieties marked with an asterisk (*)  are the ones that I have personally used with good success.
