I have Aubrieta in my garden, quite a bit of it, but have never seen the deer eating it and I know we have deer that eat our neighbors trees. Although, we have snow cover all winter but I never knew snow to keep deer at bay.
From Zone 7a: Thank you for your responses. As often happens, curiosity and plant lust win out over fears so I will experiment. And, Toni Leland, how very fortunate you are to be deer-free. Your articles continue to entice.
