Deer are major headaches for gardeners year-round eating up all sorts of veggies, fruits and flowerbeds. When gardeners have had enough of deer damage in gardens, they turn to a number of deer management strategies including growing deer resistant plants. While there are a number of flowers and herbs to grow, some can handle the cool temperatures in the fall and winter seasons. Here are the best fall plants to grow for deer resistance:

  • Black-eye Susan
  • Becky Shasta Daisy
  • Bradford Pear
  • Joe Pyd Weed
  • Beebalm
  • Sage
  • Poppy
  • Indigo
  • Bleeding Heart
  • Coneflower

    These plants require low to moderate water and partial to full sunlight. They are intended to keep away deer, rabbits and other hungry critters. Planting flowers for deer resistance is fun for hobby gardeners and will leave gardeners seeing less deer on home properties. This technique for deer control should be used in conjunction with the use of a deer fence, the most effective means to rid deer from landscapes.
