Deer-Resistant Native Plants for the Northeast

By Ruth Rogers Clausen Gregory D Tepper

Deer are an ever-present problem in gardens across the Northeast. In Deer-Resistant Native Plants for the North­east, Ruth Rogers Clausen and Gregory D. Tepper offer a solution: native plants that deer simply don’t eat.

Deer-Resistant Native Plants for the Northeast includes annuals, peren­nials, ferns, grasses, sedges, and shrubs. Every plant profile includes a deer-resistance rating, hardiness zone information, height and spread, and a description that highlights additional spe­cies. Additional information includes suggested companion plants and details on the pollinators and beneficial wildlife that each species attracts.

This practical, authoritative guide is a must-have for home gardeners in Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, North Carolina, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, Vermont, West Virginia, and Washing­ton, D.C.
