Question: We are pulling shrubs that have grown to large, and we are replacing approx 5 new ones. We have deer's that come into our yard, and need ones they do not like. We have a ranch style home. Doing the updating in the front under bay window, accross the front.

Answer: Some of the most deer resistant shrubs for the New York area include:

Amorpha fruticosa (desert false indigo) - highly resistant, deciduous; Ceanothus herbaceus (Jersey tea) - highly resistant, deciduous; Cephalanthus occidentalis (common buttonbush) - moderately resistant, evergreen; Rhus aromatica (fragrant sumac) - highly resistant, deciduous; Symphoricarpos orbiculatus (coralberry) - moderately resistant, deciduous; Ptelea trifoliata (common hoptree) - highly resistant, deciduous.
