Aggressive, native groundcover that deer do not like

I am looking for an aggressive groundcover to outcompete an invasive houtynnia (chameleon plant) in an area of my yard. I cannot afford to dig up the entire area, and have found repeated applications of Roundup as was previously suggested by your office to be ineffective. I want a native plant, that is very deer resistant. Would ostrich ferns or equisetum fit the requirement? The area is a dry, sunny area, that will have limited access to hand watering. Thanks for any help. Sandy Laden

Japanese Maple

A Japanese Maple at my Rockville home has lacked vigor coming through the last few winters. Some branches are completely defoliated. Should I try to trim it or start over? I am attaching photos. Thanks for your consideration of this question.

Growing indoor herbs

I purchased some herbs from our local big box store - basil, parsley, thyme and rosemary. I planted them in potting soil and watered them when the topsoil was dry. The basil and parsley get the morning sun and the thyme gets afternoon sun. I have already lost the rosemary. The thyme and parsley have white on the leaves. I checked for aphids but did not see any. Also, the basil is lymph and not thriving. Could you please advise me on these problems? Thank you
