Answer: Red twigged dogwood is a large shrub that gets 10- 15' tall. It is a great wildlife shrub and hedge, but bambi will also like to browse on the young twigs. The good part is dogwoods are tough plants and grow quickly. However, you probably should protect it the first few years with a wire cage until it gets large enough. Unfortunately, deer will eat almost anything if hungry enough, so it's hard to recommend another shrub. You might want to try barberry or honeysuckles. check the local parks andforest to see what shrubs are not damaged by deer and find cultivated cousins of these at local nurseries.
