Shrubs that deer won’t eat

Q.      I’m in need of a list of shrubs and trees that deer will not eat.

A.      There are many shrubs and trees that are rarely damaged by deer, but that is no guarantee that if the deer are starving they won’t touch them. Some deer-resistant shrubs are barberry, common boxwood, Japanese plum yew, heath, John T. Morris holly, Lydia Morris holly, Oregon grape holly, moonglow juniper and bayberry. Some deer-resistant trees are mimosa, river and paper birches, dwarf Alberta spruce, red and pitch pines. Your best bet is to visit a well-stocked garden center and see what they suggest that appeals to you.
