A few more deer resistant plant to consider
Have a great day

Variegated False Holly
Osmanthus heterophyllus ‘Variegatus’
Height: 8 feet
Spread: 6 feet
Sunlight:
Hardiness Zone: 7a
Other Names: Olive Holly
Description:
Spiny, lustrous leaves are holly-like, but it’s related to lilac
and privet; the main attraction is its white variegated
leaves; covered with fragrant, white trumpet flowers; more
adaptable than holly
Ornamental Attributes:
Variegated False Holly is covered in stunning fragrant
white tubular flowers along the branches in early fall. It
has attractive white-variegated dark green foliage. The
spiny oval leaves are ornamentally significant but do not
develop any appreciable fall color. The smooth dark gray
bark is extremely showy and adds significant winter
interest.
Landscape Attributes:
Variegated False Holly is a dense multi-stemmed
evergreen shrub with an upright spreading habit of
growth. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but
can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or
shrubs for an effective composition.
This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and is best pruned in late
winter once the threat of extreme
cold has passed. Deer don’t particularly care for this plant and will
usually leave it alone in favor of tastier
treats. Gardeners should be aware of the following characteristic(s) that
may warrant special
consideration;
– Spiny
Variegated False Holly is recommended for the following landscape
applications;
– Hedges/Screening
– Mass Planting
– Accent
– Topiary
– General Garden Use
Plant Characteristics:
Variegated False Holly will grow to be about 8 feet tall at maturity, with a
spread of 6 feet. It tends to fill
out right to the ground and therefore doesn’t necessarily require facer
plants in front, and is suitable for
planting under power lines. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal
conditions can be expected to live for
40 years or more.
This shrub does best in full sun to partial shade. It does best in average
to evenly moist conditions, but
will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil pH, but
grows best in rich soils. It is highly
tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments.
This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
