Deer Resistant Evergreens

Anonymous added on March 15, 2011 | Answered

We have two propane tanks (5') that we would like to camouflage. The soil in the area is excellent, but there is a good amount of shade. The biggest issue is that we have a multitude of deer who tend to visit. We have had rhododendrons browsed (they prefer white over any other color) and in hard winters they have eaten holly, just to name a few. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Some deer-resistant plants include various conifers, forsythia, lupine, yarrow, lamb’s ear, marigold, and delphinium. However, no matter what the plant, if a deer is very hungry, it will eat almost anything. This is why they say deer resistant rather than deer proof.
