Deer & elk avoid these plants! A beautiful blend of wildflowers that foraging animals (deer, elk) prefer to avoid — especially if other food is nearby. Consisting of perennial plants, this mix will bloom the second year after it has firmly become established. Seed pack (1 oz) treats 100 square feet.
Note: Garden netting and other barriers will help young plants to get established — preventing some damage by foraging animals.
Deer Resistant Mix Includes:
Black-Eyed Susan, Larkspur, Rocky Mountain Beeplant, Liatris, Columbine, Purple Prairie Clover, Red Shirley Poppy, Mixed Shirley Poppy, California Poppy, Foxglove, Shasts Daisy, Salvia, Purple Coneflower, Rocky Mountain Iris, Lupine, Alyssum, Silver Sage, Blue Flax and Blanket Flower.
The ideal time to plant wildflowers is either in the spring (one month prior to date of last hard freeze) or late fall (after October).
For even distribution, combine with clean, dry sand at a ratio of 4:1 (sand to seed) and scatter by hand or mechanical spreader. Gently rake over the area covering to a depth of 1/8 to 1/4 inch or 2-3 times the seed diameter. Keep moist for 4-6 weeks to ensure the best germination.
