When I first designed my gardens, I researched butterfly and hummingbird attracting plants to entice them to my yard. I dreamed of having a garden that was flooded by these beautiful creatures. Thankfully, there is a lot of plant overlap that attracts both.
Once I honed my plant list, I considered deer browsing and what plants I should avoid. While I don’t mind adding plants that have a low deer resistance rating because I spray them, I prefer to focus more on plants that they tend to avoid.
