My parents' house is situated in a leafy suburb, which is lovely and full of wildlife. That wildlife also includes roving bands of deer, which periodically pass through the yard and do varying amounts of damage. We regularly wrap shed hair from our dog around those plants that seem most delicious to them, but every time I plant something new it is a gamble. This morning I found two recently planted perennials - one gray-headed prairie coneflower (Ratibida pinnata) and one gay feather (Liatris spicata 'Kobold') - decimated:
Liatris spicata 'Kobold'
Oddly, native plants like these two do not appear to be less prone to deer damage than exotics, despite having always shared their habitat with the deer.
