The Deer seem to prefer Natives?
I've heard that Deer prefer to graze on native plants. There are deer in this area, but fortunately the population doesn't seem too large. They pass through the yard fairly regularly, because I see their tracks, but there is relatively little nibbling on my garden plants, and I am growing a lot of natives. They did munch down most of the Tulips this Spring (a non-native, of course).
Yesterday evening, I was gardening in the back yard, looked over and saw a Doe creeping along the property line with the next-door neighbor. She was munching on something quite intently. I was curious what she was eating over there?
The area where the Doe was grazing is kind of a free-for-all for invasive plants - but the Doe was eating a native that grows in the mix. This question is for fun and you guys will probably guess in 2 seconds. Can you tell which of the plants the deer was eating in this picture?
