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:

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 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.
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.
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. To ensure you get the most out of your spring landscaping investment, choose Pannone’s Lawn Pros & Landscaping. We are known for excellence when it comes to seasonal planting in Georgia!

What our clients say about us

Katherine M.

Would give 10 stars if I could. Pannone Landscaping exceeded our expectations and was such a pleasure to work with! Brad set reasonable expectations for the timing of the work (leveling, drainage system, fire pit, and sodding), and was the best priced quote with quality material and labor. We cannot speak highly enough of Brad and his crew, from their professionalism to expert advice to skilled work! Our yard went from ugly mud pit to lush golf course. Looking forward to working with Pannone and his team again!

Alex D.

Brad and his team did a wonderful job for us! Our backyard was overgrown and a mess after we moved in. Brad helped us come up with a plan to turn it around that would work for our family. He was quick to respond, reasonable priced, and our yard looks fantastic. We’ve gotten so many compliments. Hope to work with him again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs some landscaping help!

Ashley W.

We had the best experience working with Pannone's Lawn Pros & Landscaping! Brad guided us on every aspect of our exterior renovation from hardscapes to the annual color. He worked to find exactly what we were looking for even when items were difficult to find. We greatly appreciate his responsiveness, honest guidance and professionalism throughout the entire project. Thank you Brad!!
