Mock Orange bushes

Zone Zone 4, Iowa Falls, Iowa | Anonymous added on June 8, 2017 | Answered

Do deer like mock orange bushes? We live in Iowa Falls, Iowa (in town) and have lots of deer in this particular area who love to graze in my back yard. They have eaten hostas, roses, lillies, marigolds. How about mock orange bushes? Thank you.
