Deer Resistant Herbs
Many Central Texas gardeners are plagued by plant-munching deer. When it comes to herbs, there are no “deer-proof” varieties, only those that are “deer resistant.” If food is scarce, deer will eat whatever is around.
Some flowering herbs that deer might not eat:
Black & Blue Sage
Mealy Blue Sage
Following is a list of herbs known to be avoided by deer, but no guarantees (the deer have not read the list!):
Mexican Mint Marigold
Silver King Artemisia
