Deer and Rodent Resistant Bulbs
Deer and rodents can do terrible damage to tulip and crocus plantings,
but there are many bulbs critters don't like, chief among them daffodils.
Below is a list of the bulbs we carry that deer and rodents generally
leave alone. Please also see our list of daffodils. Only members of
the Amaryllis family, which includes daffodils, snowflakes and snowdrops,
are truly deer proof and rodent proof. They contain a bitter, poisonous
substance called lycorine that no mammal will eat. The other bulbs in the
list below are unpleasant to deer and rodents. Deer and rodents will
generally avoid them but might take a bite if the plants are directly in
their path or starvation gives the animals no alternative.
All daffodils are deer and rodent proof!
