First year I planted one of these, the rabbits ate the whole thing. Second year I planted it again, and they did a lot of damage, but toward the end of the summer I discovered a product called Repellex. I buried the tablets under each of my lilies and certain other plants that seem to be very tasty to the doggon varmints. That seemed to work, and by year two I have a pretty thick group of these lovely lilies.
