Thanks for writing. No plants are truly deer proof, but some that deer tend to pass by include highly poisonous varieties (monkshood, hellebore, castor bean); plants with very fuzzy or hairy foliage (lamb's ears, brunnera, etc.); or plants that have strongly scented leaves (yarrow, bee balm, herbs, etc.).
