Deer Resistant Plants Every Gardener Needs

Deer can be a big nuisance for some gardeners. That’s because they love to eat the leaves and flowers of some of our favorite garden plants, and in doing so, trample over others that get in their way. While no plant is deer-proof, many of our plants are less palatable for these furry critters. Check out a list of deer-resistant plants below. These will deter deer and make sure your garden stays happy and healthy all season long. Check out our entire inventory of deer resistant plants by clicking here.

These are just a few of our plants that are deer resistant. If you find a different plant of interest, and you want to know if it is deer resistant, it will always be labeled as such on our site. If it isn’t, be sure to plant deer resistant plants around non-resistant plants to keep deer away from your landscapes and garden.
