You mention several plants in this article that are nutritious for deer, Firethorn (Pyracantha), burning bush (Euonymus alata), and barberry. Others mentioned, winged Euonymus, and shrub and vine honeysuckles, found growing "naturally" are all considered invasive in North Carolina where I live. I have avoided planting these shrubs and vines. I would consider planting some of these to deter browsing on other shrubs on my property but I am reluctant because of their invasive status.

Glad to see your post Saurkencrrcom. It is very important I think.

Here on the east coast of Australia I have increasingly considered whether plant might be invasive before buying it. Sometimes 'attractive' plants can become a nightmare to remove. Birds and wind can carry seed for miles. I am trying to eradicate some things I once planted. Unfortunately, Murraya is still sold by nurseries in Australia.

Often species to deter or destroy pests don't work and become a major problem. Across Australia we have cane toads introduced to control an agricultural pest.
