Truly Deer Resistant Plants ~ Zones 4 and 5

Hi ~ I’m of the Deerski Family and we keep your lawn dandelion free!

Our first attempt at a beautiful garden at our new Homestead was eaten to nubs by the Deerski Family. This is not a problem that I envisioned could possibly even be a problem prior to moving to Wisconson. How naive!

We are now on a mission to find every truly deer resistant flowering plant on the face of Mother Earth for USDA Hardiness Zones 4~5. Technically, we are listed in zone 5 but zone 4 is within a stone’s throw.

I shall only be listing plants that have been tested, tried and true by me, because whoever deemed most of the plants I bought from Menards, Home Depot, Fleet Farm, etc as Deerski Family resistant didn’t have the experience or knowledge to do so. OR, they outright LIED to get our money ~ Thiefs!

I do not want others to have to waste their time and money if they don’t have to. I also don’t want others to experience all the very satisfying hard work of designing and planting a garden only to come out one morning to enjoy a cup of coffee and experience your heart drop into your stomach and then the disappointment that lingers the rest of the season.

So, I will first post the truly Deerski Family resistant plant in a blog post and then I will list it here in alphabetical order.

Feel free to comment or ask any questions and I will do my best to answer.
