Don’t overlook spring-blooming bulbs when choosing plants for deer resistance. These flowers have compounds or fragrances in them that are unpalatable - or sometimes toxic - to deer and critters. They’ll provide early season color and fragrance in your garden, early-season nectar and pollen for bees, without the worry. We offer Daffodils, Bearded Iris, Hyacinths, Muscari, and more.
Tulips are often favored by deer, and unfortunately, once the deer eat the blooms, the tulips won't bloom again until the next spring. If they are a “must have” for your spring garden, you may be able to keep the deer at bay if Tulips are planted amid other deer resistant plants. Wildflower Tulips are a good deer-resistant option.
