When deer are hungry they will eat almost any plant.  Deer will especially nibble on most plants in the spring when plants are tender, more palatable and high in nutrition.  The plants below are less likely to be eaten by deer.  Plants not bothered in one area may be a preferred food in a different part of the country.  This is a partial list, additional plants will be added later.
