Deer Resistant

Blooms that are rarely damaged by common garden pests

Garden Pests can be a challenge in certain areas of North America. With large populations of deer throughout certain regions, with careful consideration you can have a garden full of beautiful blooms. There are certain bulbs that are bitter in taste and will be left alone by common garden pests. Unfortunately, bulbs like tulips are well-liked by deer but other popular bulbs like narcissus, hyacinths and allium are pest resistant.
