Here in Brookings Oregon (southern coast) we have herds of deer coming through our neighborhood. They especially like red twig dogwood, iberis sempervirons Candytuft, occasionally rhododendren buds, and sedum Autumn Joy. They even ate my crocus bloom this year, altho only the white and purple - for some reason didn't like the yellow. They have been known to come up onto my porch and eat pansies and other annuals right out of my pots. I can't plant roses or tulips out front as it like deer candy. They never forget where the choice plantings are!
