Are you tired of providing and all-you-can-eat buffet for the local deer population? We have you have what you need. Shop our deer resistant perennials, trees and shrubs. Here is a quick look at some of our favorites.
Please note these are deer resistant, if a deer is hungry enough they will eat just about anything.
Deer Resistant Evergreens:
Skimmia – an evergreen ground cover that does particularly well in the shade and sports red berries when there is a male pollinator in the vicinity.
Boxwood. – enough said.
Juniper – for those hot sunny spots.
Green Giant Arborvitae. If you need a fast-growing instant screen from neighbors, this is your plant!
Andromeda – A great choice for a partly shady spot. New growth adds a pop of color and clusters of bell-shaped flowers in spring. Scarlet O’Hara will take care of your miniature needs while Dorothy Wyckoff and Mountain Fire will grow up to 6 foot tall.
Leucothoe – a great shady evergreen groundcover. Added bonus – its flowers will attract all the pollinators.
Deer Resistant Flowering Shrubs:
Potentilla – a midsummer flower in shades of white, pink and yellow.
Kolkwitzia ‘Dream Catcher’ (Beautybush) – an old-fashioned vase shaped shrub with arching branches that bloom in spring. Chartreuse leaves brighten up any shady spot.
Scotch Broom – We have Moonlight, Golden yellow, and even red and pink.
Enkianthus – This is a little known gem that we are just head over heels for, mainly because of its fall color!!! Autumn brings about a spectacular technicolor foliage. It runs the gamut. In mid to late spring it bears just the daintiest clusters of white or red bell flowers. It’s the perfect candidate for a partially shaded woodland garden.
Deer Resistant Natives
Arctostaphylos (Bearberry) – a perfect little evergreen groundcover that bears tiny bell-shaped flowers in spring.
Arrowwood Viburnum – It’s a triple threat apart from being native. It’s deer resistant, has fall color foliage and berries, while flowering in the spring.
