I have many deer which/who have pushed me into learning about plants they leave alone. Over the past five years I have planted many many varieties of Allium. The choices for them are increasingly wide and their shapes, sizes and timing of blooms makes for many continuing surprises in my Connecticut garden.
What about us in Florida that have problems with deer eating our plants? I've read a lot of articles but they seem to be from up north? I'm trying to find some bush's that don't get taller than 2 and a half feet, that I can use in front of my Buford Holly bushes, that are about 4 feet tall. I want to replace my 15 year old Indian Hawthorns, which the deer have enjoyed off and on for a long time. They have just outlived their growing life. They are coming back after our hard winter this year and don't know wether to put the samething back in again? We have had a lot of problems with the deer eating them off and on, according to the time of year.
So, any thoughts of what kind of shrub would be greatly appreciated. I've thought of Mrs. Schillers Vibernun, not sure if it looks good in front of the Holly? Also, did forget to mention that we do have reclaimed water, which killed our Laurel Pedlum and azaleas.
So, help me if you can, come up with something that will work.
