|I have a steep slope that I would like to plant with some type of creeping shrub or ground cover that will be resistant to deer. I had planted some creeping Juniper, but the deer ate them last year.|
|Although there are no guarantees, these plants are rarely eaten by deer:
Allegheny spurge (Pachysandra procumbens) and Japanese pachysandra (Pachysandra terminalis), Northern sea oats (Chasmanthium latifolium), Blue oat grass (Helictotrichon sempervirens), Lilyturf (Liriope spicata), Bugleweed (Ajuga reptans 'Atropurpurea'), Creeping myrtle, or periwinkle vinca vine (Vinca minor),
Deadnettle (Lamium galeobdolon), Catnip (Nepeta cataria), Sweet woodruff (Galium odoratum), Thyme (Thymus vulgaris). Best wishes with your new groundcover!
