Fill your garden with native plants, not deer.
The benefits of growing natives are plentiful—less upkeep, more pollinators, and a better environment. In Deer-Resistant Native Plants for the Northeast, Ruth Rogers Clausen and Gregory D. Tepper provide a list of natives that have one more benefit—they are proven to help prevent your garden from becoming a deer buffet.
From annuals and perennials to grasses and shrubs, every suggested plant includes a deer-resistance rating, growing advice, companion species, and the beneficial wildlife the plant does attract. Let these beautiful natives help your landscape flourish!
For gardeners in Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington, DC.
“For gardeners looking to create natural spaces that will serve as lasting havens for pollinators and birds, this practical guide will prove the ticket.” —Publishers Weekly
