Are peonies resistant to javalina and deer predation in Prescott, AZ
The University of Arizona Cooperative Extension Service has a Deer and Rabbit Resistant Plants list. This list, however, doesn't show peonies (Paeonia sp.). You can find links to several listings of deer resistant plants at About.com:Gardening and several of these do list peonies. According to the Deer-Resistant Landscape Nursery in Connecticut, peonies are somewhat resistant—the deer sometimes eat the leaves in fall. Another nursery, Chaska Farm & Garden in Minnesota, has several peonies on its Deer Resistant Perennials list. The University of Arizona Cooperative Extension Service even has a list of Javelina Resistant Plants, and, lo and behold, peonies are included as being javelina resistant! Remember, however, that even though peonies occur on both deer and javelina resistant lists, this is no guarantee that one or the other animal won't decide that peonies are just what they like best.
