From:Tampa, FL Region: Southeast Topic: Deer Resistant Title: Deer resistant groundcover for Tampa, Florida Answered by: Nan Hampton
I live in Tampa, FL and have a deer problem. I was wondering if you would give me some suggestions for deer resistant ground covers that are hearty and flower but most of all "DEER RESISTANT"!!!
Below are plants native to Hillsborough County, Florida that have been designated "deer resistant". You should realize, however, that if environmental conditions (such as drought) ilimit the availability of the preferred foods of the deer, then they will eat plants that normally they would avoid. All of these plants are low-growing and some have colorful flowers. Others have more subtle flowers but interesting foliage. Ferns, of course, have no flowers at all, but deer avoid eating them and they make good groundcovers in moist shade.
