Several plants...and Deer.
Does anyone know the reason that deer do not like members of the family Scrophulariaceae, and also the plant wild senna (Cassia hebecarpa).
I am familiar with deer not liking members of the families Berberidaceae and Buxaceae, as well as species like Asimina trilobum. I am not familiar with why Scrophs and Cassia are almost completely deer resistant. Do they have a toxin that deer cannot deal with? I find it odd that deer here will eat almost anything here, but leave these plants alone.
What thoughts on this do you have?
