A helpful AP article by Dean Fosdick reminds me as I prepare my fall bulb order that my garden is plagued by deer, chipmunks, voles and other critters. So while I may leave the fancy tulips to those not-so-blessed with wildlife, I have no shortage of flower-bulb choices.
The Chicago Botanical Garden has this helpful list of wildlife resistant bulbs. Pictures of some of my favorites follow.
- Arum italicum
- Bulbocodium vernum
- Geranium tuberosum
- Nectaroscordum siculum (pictured)
Narcissus of all kinds. (I’m partial to these thalia daffs)
Colchicum (fall flowering)
Allium (with euphorbia)
