Realizing that no plant is deer proof, plants listed are best for landscapes prone to deer damage. Success of any of these plants in the landscape will depend on local deer populations and weather conditions. Shrubs planted with additional protection such as the use of fencing, repellents, etc are always the most successful.
*Please note that not all plants listed are available. Call to inquire. *Most, if not all, ornamental grasses fall in the deer resistant range.
Rutgers University provides an amazing resource of landscape plants rated according to their resistance to deer damage. The list was compiled with input from nursery and landscape professionals, Rutgers New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station (NJAES) Cooperative Extension personnel, and Rutgers Master Gardeners in northern New Jersey. Plants in the Rarely Damaged, and Seldom Severely Damaged categories would be best for landscapes prone to deer damage. Other plants are categorized into Occasionally Severely Damaged and Frequently Severely Damaged. Searching for information on a particular species?
