What are some deer resistant perennial bushes suitable for eastern Maine?


I would like to surprise my daughter with a few perennial bushes (also deer resistant) for her yard and would like to know which ones are suitable for eastern Maine weather.

You can find excellent information on native plants for various needs (including deer resistance) on our Plants for the Maine Landscape page and the State of Maine’s Deer Resistant Plants list. I will call particular attention, as well, to our Native Plants Source list, which should give you a starting place for locating nurseries up here where you can find these plants for sale.
