The Q&A Archives: deer resistance

Question: Is Sweet Autumn Clematis----Clematis paniculata---deer resistant?

Answer: Monrovia doesn't list deer resistance as an attribute for that plant. However, what deer will or will not eat is highly variable, depending on how hungry they are, other food sources, and even what region of the country they are in! What is resistant in one place may not be elsewhere. Fences are usually the only guaranteed method of foiling deer.
