Rabbit Resistant Plants

There are many more plants on rabbit resistant lists. However, I'm including only those that I have personally tried in my garden.

* = more likely to be nibbled, especially new foliage and first buds. Remember that rabbits can sit up on their hind legs to reach higher. Rabbits will also scratch the trunks of shrubs and trees with their claws.

Rabbits and deer can do a lot of damage. The loss can be discouraging. Although there are no guarantees in growing plants on rabbit resistant and deer resistant lists, you can minimize the disappointments. You can have a beautiful garden in spite of rabbits and deer!
