Deer will eat anything if they are hungry.

Yes, but they always seemed to have a sweet tooth for my mother's roses.

I have a fig tree and the deer stop there to nibble. They like my neighbor's pears too. My son lives in a tropical location outside Savannah and some of the neighbors have actually put fences around their trees to keep them from nibbling on their bark. Do you want them to eat? Just curious.

Deer love to eat corn, but they are polite and will eat most anything that you grow in your garden for them and they truly appreciate it. It might be a shorter list to ask what they don't eat and that would include strong smelling herbs - even plants that are supposed to be poisonous, stinky, and deer repellents; the deer will eat if they are hungry enough.

Our hostas always get munched down to the stems every year.
