Flower garden on a slope

I have a steep slope on the side of my house and a large deer population I need recomendations for plants that are deer proof offer color and can withstand a Maine winter. I am planning some rock wall work with a path going up the hill due to the electric meter being on the house at this spot (top of the hill) any photo's you may have for this type of garden area and plant ideas would be very welcome. Oh I love the garden planning tool. Thank you

For the best list, go to our Plant Encyclopedia on this website and do an Advanced Search, plugging in your criteria such as zone, deer resistance, etc. It should give you a list of plants you can grow. Thanks for your kind words  about the planning area. I bet you'll find the Encyclopedia even more helpful.
