What kind of perennial plants that are resistant to deer and rabbits do you recommend for a shady area under pine trees? We have both eating the plantings in our yard.

Thanks for writing. Some of my favorite deer- and rabbit-resistant shade plants include:

  • Coralbells (Heuchera)
  • Lungwort (Pulmonaria)
  • Bleeding heart (Dicentra)
  • Yellow corydalis (Corydalis lutea)
  • Perennial geranium (Geranium phaeum)
  • Epimedium
  • Brunnera
