Buttonbushes (Cephalanthus occidentalis) add a distinctive touch to any landscape with their unique, spherical flower heads. However, these native plants can sometimes attract unwanted attention from deer.
The Appeal of Buttonbushes
Buttonbushes offer a unique aesthetic value, but they also play an important role ecologically. Their flowers attract pollinators, and their dense structure provides habitats for various creatures.
Aesthetic and Ecological Importance
The aesthetic value of buttonbushes is only half the story. These plants are also crucial for maintaining a balanced ecosystem.
Understanding Deer Behavior Around Plants
To help protect your buttonbushes, understanding the dietary habits and behavior of deer is essential.
Deer Preferences Throughout the Year
Deer are opportunistic feeders and their dietary preferences change with the seasons.
- Spring: Young leaves and grass
- Summer: Herbaceous plants and berries
