Unfortunately, there is no definitive list for plants deer hate. However, there are some lists of plants that see to be less attractive to deer most of the time. The following list was developed in West Virginia but the plants should grow well in your area also.

If you live in an area where the deer browse pressure is severe, you may want to consider installing a tall fence to protect your landscaping. You might also consult with your neighbors to find out which plants they are having success with. Enjoy your new home!
