Controlling Deer Damage In Georgia

Deer Tolerant Plants

Planting ornamental plants that are a low preference to deer is one solution to deer browsing. Please remember that very few plants, if any, are totally deer resistant. When deer populations are high and food is scarce, hungry deer are more likely to feed on low preference and otherwise unpalatable ornamental plants. Deer prefer tender new foliage on young plants and fertilized ornamentals. During dry conditions, deer may be attracted to irrigated plants. Appendix 1 will be helpful when selecting deer tolerant ornamental plants for your landscape.
