I am having problems with deer eating my hibiscus.What plants could I plant that would not be eaten? I have northwest exposure and especially need a fairly large plant that would anchor my garden. I would prefer something unique to the area.

The University of Florida recommends the following deer resistant shrubs:
Bottlebrush (Callistemon spp.), Camellia, Carissa, Chinese holly, Croton and Gardenia, Viburnum, Wax Myrtle, Heavenly bamboo (Nandina ), Ixora, Japanese boxwood and Juniper. Hope they work well in your garden!
