RABBIT eatingRabbits

Believe it or not, rabbits can cause as much damage as deer in the garden.  Although they are extremely adorable mammals, it isn't always adorable watching them eat every plant that you've worked hard to nourish and grow in your garden and flowerbeds.

That is why we have compiled the list below of Perennials that are rabbit resistant:

Achillea Centranthus Heuchera Penstemon
Ajuga Convallaria Hosta Pulmonaria
Anemone Corydalis Iris Scabiosa
Alchemilla Digitalis Lamium Sedum
Aruncas Eupatorium Liriope Stachys
Aster Galium Nepeta Verbena
Astilbe Geranium Origanum Veronica
Brunnera Helianthus Paeonia Viola
