You're all very welcome! It's something I ran across a long time ago googling for deer resistance. Definitely one of the better lists out there since it shows the varying levels of attractiveness to our 4 legged friends!

I swear the deer have checked the lists in Sunset publications - and they go against nearly everything listed as being resistant. Apparently the deer are not yet online, so they can't check this list!!!!!!!!!

They've probably checked this list too, but at least if you avoid planting things in the most commonly damaged categories you've got a better shot of not having them eat everything in the garden. Nothing's perfect though!

So I'm not the only ones who swear critters leave each other notes!
