Hi - I just purchased some Indian Hawthorn (dwarf) from my local HD ... we have deer in our area. Should I be concerned/exchange for something else?

The jury is still out in terms of deer resistance and Indian Hawthornes. In some gardens they ignore them, in others they nibble them. Even the university sites that supply lists of deer resistant plants cannot decide so I'm afraid I can't guide you. Wish I had more to offer!
