We love our neighbor’s, the Deerski Family, and want to live in harmony with them, so, we are on a mission to find every TRULY deer resistant plant on the face of the earth that will grow in USDA Hardiness zones 4-5. We are shown in zone 5 but zone 4 is, literally, inches away.
We took it for granted that we would have a beautiful garden this last season just because we bought plants that said they were “deer resistant”. Lies, all lies!
I will document in a blog post each plant that I have experienced to be deer resistant and then I will add it to the running list on my Page: Truly Deer Resistant Plants ~ Zones 4~5.
This lone Lavender plant was a plant my Mom brought me from her garden. I actually didn’t know it was Lavender until a couple of months after I planted it. The plant looked like it was going to die and then it started growing again, all new growth. The important part is that the deer ate everything around it but did not touch the Lavendar so I had to know what it was. I thought it had an herbal look to it so I plucked off a flower and crushed it between my fingers. Well, I might not have recognized the plant but I sure as heck recognized the smell!
I’ll be buying a lot more Lavendar! Supposedly mosquitos find it offensive, too.
Does anyone have Lavender in their garden and what are your thoughts about it?
