Here you will find deer resistant plants for the St Louis Missouri area.
Bambi sure is cute but so destructive. But don’t give up, you still can have a garden by selecting plants that deer will leave alone. Deer dislike plants with strong scents and taste, and with textures that are hairy or not smooth such as Beebalm. Deer resistant plants include ones with thorns and some grasses with thin leaf blades.
Below is a list of deer resistant Missouri native plants — but remember, no plant is “fool proof,” and what works for you might not work for a neighbor. We also recommend a variety of products, including Plantskydd, Bobbex, and Repellex.
All plants listed here are offered in the nursery, subject to availability. Some of these plants may be ordered online for curbside pickup.
