The deer LOVE this one. I'm surprised its so big in a deer prone area

Marin Co. has lots of cities where the deer don't roam. Green Grin!

I meant where they are surrounded by wooded areas, then yes, they can wander through the neighborhoods but not all of Marin County is adjacent to wooded areas.

This bush is in a residential neighborhood in San Rafael, I have never seen a deer downtown on our streets. Thanks for the tip about this being deer food though, that really helps me decide where to plant (fenced yards, cities) and where not to plant (Mill Valley, for example, where the deer roam like ants ) Smiling
