Deer Problems

Which plants - especially perennials - would deer avoid?
Submitted by BHGPhotoContest

We get this question a lot and the fact is, if a deer is hungry enough, it will eat anything. Even things like digitalis, which are considered poisonous. In general, they are least attracted to fuzzy and spiny leafed plants, and those with gray foliage. You can spray plants to make them distasteful. There are a number of products out there, such as Liquid Fence.
