Hungry deer will eat nearly everything so there are no guarantees, but these plants are generally ignored by deer: Ageratum (Ageratum spp.) Begonia (Begonia spp.) Black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta) Blackfoot Daisy (Melampodium lecanthum)3 Bluebonnet (Lupinus texensis)3 Cast-Iron Plant (Aspidistra lurida) Cedar Sage (Salvia roemeriana) Chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum spp.) Coreopsis (Coreopsis spp.) Cosmos (Cosmos bipinnatus) Dusty Miller (Senecio cineraria) Flame Acanthus (Anisacanthus wrightii) Foxglove (Digitalis spp.) Holly Fern (Cyrtomium falicatum) Indigo Spires (Salvia spp.) Iris (Iris spp.) Mealy Blue Sage (Salvia farinacea) Mexican Bush Sage (Salvia leucanthia) Mexican Mint Marigold (Tagetes spp.) Periwinkle (Vinca rosea) Purple Cone Flower (Echinacea angustifolia) Savory (Satureia spp.) Sword Fern (Nephrolepis spp.) Verbena (Verbena spp.) Wood Fern (Dryopteris spp.) Yarrow (Achillea filipendulina) Zexmenia (Zexmenia hispida) Zinnia (Zinnia spp.) Interplant your veggies and maybe the deer won't notice them! Good luck with your garden.
