Copper Canyon Daisy
Copper Canyon daisy (Tagetes lemonii) produces a 3- to 4-foot-tall mound of finely cut foliage with a strong citrusy-pine odor. In fall the plant absolutely explodes with a profusion of single, bright yellow blooms about an inch in diameter. I learned long ago not to say any plant is "deer proof," but this one is as close as you can get. Give it full sun and good drainage. It is a superb choice for informal perennial beds or water-thrifty landscapes.
