Since I have been asked to design and implement the landscaping for my brother's new house, I am asking for all your help. [muggs]

I need a list of plants and shrubs that are deer and elk resistant.

I would prefer perenials, and flowering shrubs but will look at all that are suggested.

Bill, maybe you can help me here, since my brother's house is up in your neck of the woods (sorta). [grin]
The house will be just north and east of Longview, Wash. but not quite to the Toutle River. It is a Zone 7? but with an eleveation of over 2,000 ft. [thinker]

Thanks everybody in advance.

At 2000 ft. elevation, the location may be in zone 6... [dunno]

Thanks Bill,

I was thinking that, but was hoping someone else would confirm it. [muggs]
Thanks also for the link, it will be very helpful.

Hi John....I live in Zone 9 so not much help here but I did receive this today and thought of you. This was sent from White Flower Farms (catalog company)...

Daffodils are the first large flowers of spring. Deer-resistant, vole-resistant,
drought-tolerant, hardy, long-lived, quick to increase, these bulbs are as close to
foolproof as a plant can be--and this is the only time of year to get them.

Very short lived but absolutely beautiful....they make very nice cuttings [flower]
