Groundcovers- Deer Proof

Deer Resistant Ground Covers
 
Dear oh deer, it's so frustrating to head out to your garden only to discover that Bambi has been munching away!   Help protect your garden by planting plants that deer often will stay away from. 
 
Deer are "browsers", and have the habit of nibbling here and there as they travel. They are willing to taste just about anything. If they find parts of the plant unpalatable they will move on.  No plant is completely deer proof.  However, some plants are less attractive to deer than others. Where the deer population is high, and food is scarce, deer will not hesitate to eat anything!
 
Here is a list to get you started with some plants that deer are likely to stay away from:
