Deer Resistant Ground Cover for shady area
Our hillside ivy has been destroyed by the deer and the pine needles that fall everywhere, making the soil very acidic. We need ground cover suggestions for a large area that is deer resistant. The hill gets very little direct sunlight.
Lantana was recommended but I fear we don't get enough sun. Rosemary was recommended, but I fear the bees that it attracts since we have small children. We'd love something with flowers, but at this point just want anything that fits the criteria!
