A few years ago, before I had to go offline, I posted about my pond garden. I had not been able to clear the path for about 3 years due to mower problems. That is fixed, so yesterday I finished clearing the path to my pond. Yay. I went down there to see how my little garden has fared, and the day lilies are fine, and a bridal wreath shrub I had planted. All of my other flowers--irises, sedums, Rose of Sharon bushes are gone. Whether they drowned--we had record rains in 2015, and also the end of April this year I had 23.75 inches of rain in only 12 days-- or got eaten by animals or stolen, who knows. I was wondering if anyone knew of some good plants that do not mind being neglected for long periods of time, and or are deer resistant? .
