I have been looking at deer resistant flowers to plant in some good-sized pots I got to go on my deck. I want them to bloom all summer and not to be too tall, short is good for pots. They will get a lot of sun where they are going to be. I have a short list of some deer resistant plants, some are annuals and some are perennials. I would like some suggestions as to what may work for my pots and how the plants do. All replies greatly appreciated, thanks.
For annuals I am looking at Marigolds; I would like Pot Marigolds as they have an A rating for deer resistance, I find French Marigolds at a local store but they have a B rating.
Some other considerations of what I think are perennials are Dianthus, they are easy to get local; Sandwort also local; Achilles & Allium; Aquilegia; Aster also easy to find; Asclepius; and pilmonaria.
Also I have a half whisky barrel that is somewhat shaded and I plan to put Nasturtiums in it.
