TEXAS HILL COUNTRY HELP!!!

Bandera, TX

Are there blooming plants that white tail deer will not eat? I live in Bandera, Texas and having trouble with the White Tail eating everything I plant.
Thanks,

Here's a reference from Texas A&M:

But before you get your hopes up, there are no plants that deer won't eat, there are just plants that they prefer less and are less likely to munch on except if there's nothing else readily available, then they'll make do with whatever's there.

If you don't water the foliage you can spray them with hot pepper water or so I have heard. Asking the neighbors and the local garden center would help too.

Do deer eat geraniums?

are they eating and killing them or just pruning them for you?

During a bad winter deer will eat anything. Where I live, we put fence cages around all our young trees except up close to the house and did O.K. for the first two years. This last winter they came all the way up to our house and ate anything they could get to. Completely stripped two camellas, one sweetbay magnolia, all my Chinese fringe shrubs, Nandinas, you name it. Fortunately they are all making a comeback this spring. The lesson learned though is that during the winter, we will have to fence everything. We even plant a food plot for the deer but they had eaten it down so bad there was nothing left. Thanks goodness we have an elelctric fence around my flowerbeds around the house to keep the dogs out--worked with the deer too.
