My husband looked up from the garden and yelled, "Oh, no! Dear!"
"Yes?" I called.
"No, not you," he said. "I meant the four-legged variety."
The critters had ransacked Will's garden.
The oak leaf hydrangeas had taken a hit also.
Bandwidth and I pulled the remains out of the ground and replanted them at Bald Hill,
a mostly deer-less place.
My mother said, "Buy Russian Sage. The deer won't eat it...usually."
Perovskia atriplicifolia is noted for its deer resistant and drought-tolerant qualities.
It likes sun and can grow 48-inches tall and 30-inches wide.
I've spotted large and small pots for sale at Home Depot and Lowe's.
Russian sage is lovely when paired with Black-eyed Susans,
but it remains to be seen if the deer will nose through the sage and take
small yellow bites out of the landscape.
