I have had some success with irish spring and liquid fence keeping deer away until.....last night it rained ten minutes really hard after dark. This morning some fool deer ate about 90% of my daylillies. I'm just sick. I'm about to take up bow hunting.

They have no natural predators around here and the problem is beyond terrible.

I've got that same problem No Kudu!!!! Grrr! You will soon learn what to plant that the dear won't eat. I've had to fence in most of my flower beds that are close to the house. Nothing more disheartning than to see your beautiful blooms chomped down by dear.

Lantana is my friend!

Totally agree-especially on LI-native Tiger lilies plus Montauk daisies which is now I think is probably Shasta daisies!

I need some tiger lilies out here in the Midwest-have the stella d'oro and some others but miss the Tiger lilies. Do have the Shasta daisies.

Most of my plants come back every year....self-seeding annuals and perennials galore. It's hard to choose. I do love my Calendulas, California poppies and lavendar "opium" poppies that come up wherever they want to, year after year. The Calendulas get transplanted to bare areas if they're too thick......LOL My own nursery stock!

One of my favorites is this hybrid daylily. The first flowers just opened yesterday. It'll continue to bloom for several weeks. I started out with one tiny plant from a catalog order, and have divided the mature plant a few times. I probably have 8 of them now, and each plant is huge. I have also given away several clumps. I've had them for about 12 years. This one is my most prolific daylily!

Wow, what a gorgeous plant, makes my plain ordinary day lily(s) seem kind of tame!
