    "Planting to keep deer out of the garden involves trade-offs. Some very popular plants such as yew, rhododendrons, azaleas, geraniums, tulips, plums and hostas attract deer, which also prefer narrow-leaf evergreens such as fir trees. Plant these close to the house, and the deer come all the way up to the door. Planting toxic plants such as daffodils, foxgloves, poppies, angel's trumpet, English hawthorn and English holly can ward off deer but put pets and children at risk of poisoning.If possible, plant the deer-resistant flowers closest to the house. Some more examples of the most deer-resistant flowers are bachelor's buttons, bluebell, buttercup, forget-me-not, lemon balm and snowdrops. Many grasses and herbs are also deer resistant. If a garden already attracts deer, fencing in the deer's favorites is one solution to saving your garden. A better solution may be to plant for both the deer's and the homeowner's enjoyment, keeping the deer's favorites at the edges of the yard.
    "Daffodils, foxgloves, poppies, lavenders, peonies and bearded irises are examples of deer-resistant flowers. Others are snapdragon, butterfly bush, Lenten roses and purple coneflower."
    "Plants that are either toxic, such as poppies and daffodils, or plants that have strong scents, including lavender and peonies, are considered deer-resistant. "
    Bachelor buttons, petunias, salvia, snapdragons, marigolds and morning glories are all deer-resistant annuals. Deer commonly avoid annuals with a strong scent, a prickly texture or those that are poisonous to them. "
