Annuals that deer and rabbits don't eat
I live in the country in mid-Michigan. I have tried the usual, well-known annuals before but the critters eat me out of house and home. I have tried hair, mothballs, catnip, soap, tabasco you name it. Are there any annuals that do well in sun and shade that deer and rabbits don't feast on? Thanks for your help. Claudia

There are few annuals that deer and rabbits leave alone. However you might try growing angel's trumpets (Datura and brugmansia) both of which are poisonous. If you have young children, avoid these however. California poppies, floss flower, forget-me-nots, pincushion flower, and ornamental grasses are usually left alone. All require sun. Perhaps use perennial ferns, astilbes and ornamental onions in shady places.
