I live in the rim country of Arizona where we have wild javelina's (pigs). They love to devour my flowers. Is there any perrenial flower that I can plant that they won't eat? Thank you!

When animals are hungry or thirsty enough, they'll eat just about anything. The only sure-fire prevention is a strong fence. However, Jeff Schalau, Yavapai County Cooperative Extension, has developed a list of plants that seem less tasty to the interesting, although sometimes destructive, creatures. You can download it at http://cals.arizona.edu/pubs/g.... Good luck!
