I just finished working on adding information to the Illinois Tick Trefoil (Desmodium illinoense). I wanted to include deer and rabbits are attracted to this, but could not. For Wildlife Attractant, I'd like to suggest the ability to add an option for Other with space to include what that "other" is. Wildlife includes so much more than what is already on the list.

People want to know deer resistance when they plant something, but as I've read more about wildlife gardening, some people want to ATTRACT (sorry for the caps, but easier than coding bold, ) deer, rabbits, etc. Or plant things for those animals to draw them away from other plants.

Is this a possibility? I think it would be more noticeable than including this information within comments. Or is there a way that I have overlooked.

Thank you.
