Deer and Prairie Docks: A Landscaper’s Guide
Prairie Docks (Silphium terebinthinaceum) present a striking presence in any garden with their tall stature and large, coarse leaves. Understanding the deer’s interest in these plants is essential for property owners considering them for their landscape.
Prairie Docks: To Plant or Not to Plant?
These native perennials are often considered less appealing to deer, due to their rough texture. However, no plant is entirely deer-proof.
Seasonal changes and food scarcity can drive deer to sample a wider range of plants, including Prairie Docks.
