I live in a semi dessert area at an elevation of 7,000. I have an area where I have landscaped into a mounded rock garden with perennials that require very little water. Also I have flower beds that I plant annuals in. By trial and error I have discovered a few plants the deer won't eat. It would be nice to get some ideas on what plants might work. I will post this in the "Perennials" forum also.
Thank you for your response. I am new to this site. So far I am glad that I found it.
I only have pics from several years ago, which don't show many of the above-listed plants. I'll take a new garden pic when spring arrives. We still have a bit of snow lying around at the moment, and nothing is growing yet.
I found a pic from 2 or 3 years ago, showing Anthemis aizoon. Behind it are Alyssum pulvinare and Linum perenne, which are short-lived perennials that seed themselves. I pulled up a lot of the blue flax seedlings last year, as tney were beginning to shade-out the alpines.
I still have 2 feet of snow in my yard. Am so anxious for spring to come. Meanwhile am doing research on all the info you guys gave me. Then after the snow melts I'll see what survived and didn't survived. Then I will replant with some of your plants you suggested.
