2018 Toadshade Wildflower Farm - Deer Resistant Plants

We have yet to hear of any plants that are truly deer proof. It seems that if there are enough deer, they'll eat almost anything. Having said that, we know that a lot of people have a great deal of trouble with deer eating their garden plants and are desperate to find something that the deer won't eat. As a matter of fact, we have a lot of deer that are regular visitors to our farm (woodchucks and rabbits too!). It gives us a pretty good testing range for deer resistant plants. Here is a list of the plant that usually are not browsed by deer on our farm.
