The Q&A Archives: Deer resistance

Question: I live in an area where deer seem to eat or sample many of the plants they don't usually eat, so I'm wondering if I plant Phorbium tenax 'Atropurpureum Compactum', will it be deer resistant or immediately devoured?
Thank you for helping me with this question.

Answer: Phormium tenax 'Atropurpureum Compactum', the dwarf New Zealand Flax, will not be at all attractive to deer. Best wishes with your landscape!
