I live in Clatsop County, and I just purchased a house with a fairly large side yard that my partner & I would like to plant some ground cover in to bring it to life a bit. We’re looking for plants that are:
1. Zero maintenance,
2. Impossible to kill,
3. EXTREMELY deer-resistant - we have a family of deer in our neighborhood that absolutely buzzsawed their way through the Aster we tried to plant this year (just massacred most of them), and
4. Pretty. :) Some color would be nice!
Do you folks have any ideas?
