Primrose Jasmine

Deer can eliminate many of the blooming plants in a neighborhood where they exist. One plant that they do not bother is primrose jasmine. This tough evergreen, mounding shrub reaches 8 feet around and prospers without irrigation. In February the small yellow blooms are very showy. For a listing of deer resistant plants, see:

Cemetery Iris

Cemetery iris provide distinctive sword-like foliage for the full and partial sun garden all year. In February and March the plants offer white orchid-like blooms that rise above the foliage. Plant iris so that the top of the rhizome is level with the soil surface. Iris are not fussy about soil type. They have survived for decades unattended in old cemeteries and on abandoned homesteads. The blue version, called blue flags, are equally tough and bloom later in the February-March period.
