Winter Plants For Deer Resistance

Jenn Smith

Posted on December 11 2019

Keeping deer out of gardens is a year-round struggle for home growers; but with the right deer management strategies, gardeners will be able to see a reduction of deer on properties. 

There are many challenges for gardeners in the winter; and deer shouldn't be one of them. To rid deer from lawns and gardens in late fall and winter, deer-resistant flowers can be grown to re-route them away from growing sites.

Here is a list of plants to grow in autumn and winter to deer-proof gardens courtesy of Fine Gardening:

  • Bradford pear
  • Austrian pine
  • ‘Gateway’ Joe Pye weed
  • ‘Crispa’ cutleaf stephanandra
  • ‘Becky’ Shasta daisy
  • ‘Karl Foerster’ feather reed grass
  • ‘Goldsturm’ black-eyed Susan

These plants should be used in-conjunction with a deer fence for best results and will prevent deer from reaching crops in the spring when plant growth is thriving.
