While reading one of my gardening books I came across a list of ornamentals and evergreens that aren't bothered by deer and Japanese bettles. Hope this can help someone.

I fought the beetles last year and this year I planted the plants that they don't like. See what happens.
Just for your information-some of these plants and trees I haven't heard of. [thumb]
