The 66 Best Deer Resistant Plants for Utah

Making your garden deer resistant beautiful!

Deer can be some of the largest pests in your garden. As a result of these large pests, we’ve put together a list of the 66 Best Deer Resistant Plants for Utah. While no plant is deer proof, we do stress that these are deer resistant plants. Unfortunately, if deer are hungry enough they will eat just about anything. These plants are very less desirable to deer so in most gardens they will be safe.
The following list includes perennials that deer tend to stay away from. If you’re looking for some larger plants or would like help landscaping your garden, we have experts on staff to help. They can discuss your specific soil type and growing zone to help narrow down what will really thrive in your area, and will also be deer resistant.
