Spring Flowers That Repel Deer Cumming, GA
Seasonal Flowers Cumming GA

Many homeowners enjoy living on land where deer and other wildlife are free to roam. However, when deer become frequent visitors to your yard, it can pose a real threat to your landscape vegetation. Spring flowers are a known snack for deer, rabbits and other critters. In fact, it can be especially frustrating to spend the money and time on planting bulbs, only to watch them get eaten away within hours or days after you see them bloom.

Do you have to sacrifice your colorful spring blooms to Bambi each year? Not necessarily, but it is important to choose the right spring flowers if you want to keep the wildlife away. The following are known as deer-resistant bulbs:

Snowdrops
These deer-resistant blooms are often the first to emerge in the spring. Snowdrop flowers deliver an attractive pop of green and white, and they aren’t a food favorite for visiting deer.
Spring Starflower
This is a less used but undoubtedly cheerful spring flower that is available in many colors, including white, pink and blue.
Daffodils
Daffodils are the top choice for deer-resistant bulbs. This popular spring flower has a specific alkaloid that deer stay away from due to its distasteful and even poisonous elements. Contrary to popular belief, daffodils aren’t always yellow. Consider creams, oranges, pinks and other shades to brighten your landscape.
Hyacinth
This spring flower is both deer-resistant and favorably fragrant. Hyacinth flowers make a great bouquet, especially since they won’t be chomped down by wildlife mammals.
Allium
While members of the onion family, Allium represent a gorgeous globe-shaped flower that attract butterflies but repel deer due to its offensive taste.

Not sure which deer-resistant flowers to plant in your yard? Each flower type blooms best in different zones, or specific combinations of shade and sunlight.

What our clients say about us

Jeffrey H.

Got sod and dirt. Both delivered on time, reasonably priced, and high quality (only found 2 rocks in 6 cubic yards of dirt and only 1 rectangle of sod out of 5 pallets was mangled). Both drivers friendly and were able to maneuver around my yard to put the stuff where I wanted it. Mostly appreciate that every time I called, someone picked up the phone rather than an answering machine. Would choose again.

We've purchased dark brown mulch from other landscape supply companies in Canton and the mulch always faded within a couple of days but then our landscaper told us to get our mulch from GLM Sod and Landscape supplies, so we decided to try them out and after an entire year, the mulch is still dark and looking great! I'll pay a few dollars extra to have our mulch delivered from Milton from now on - it just makes good sense!

Peter G.

Huge thank you to GLM for great professional products, as well as impeccable service! I will definitely be back to purchase more for future projects!
