There is no magic list of plants that satisfy all of your desires. However, for any given area there may be a selection of plants and some appropriate ways to diminish the deer pressure. Please refer to the following page of our website. There you will find plant selections that will attract wildlife and these can be cross referenced with the publication that deals with deer pressure in the landscape.
