What Houzz contributors are saying:

Pincushion Flower(Scabiosa spp)A nearly indefatigable bloomer, this easy-growing perennial produces lavender-blue, deep blue, white or pink flowers from early summer to early fall. It’s deer resistant and tough. The plant’s common name refers to its resemblance to small pincushions. For best effect, plant it in containers or in groups near the front of beds and borders. Deadhead for even longer blooming. USDA zones: 3 to 11Water requirement: Drought tolerant, though it prefers humus-rich, moist soilLight requirement: Full sun. Can handle partial shade in the southern United States.Mature size: 10 to 24 inches tall and wide
Butterfly Blue Pincushion Flower(Scabious columbaria ‘Butterfly Blue’)Isn’t it wonderful when you can include flowers as beautiful as this in your deer-patrolled garden? This looks especially beautiful planted near black foliage, such as one of the darker-leaved varieties of bugbane (syn snakeroot, Acteae syn Cimicifuga), which the deer also seem to ignore. Origin: The Mediterranean, Western Asia and North Africa; Butterfly Blue is a garden hybrid.Where it will grow: Hardy to -40 degrees Fahrenheit (USDA zones 3 to 9)Water requirement: AverageLight requirement: Full sunMature size: 1 foot tall and wideBenefits and tolerances: Makes a great cut flower; attracts butterfliesSeasonal interest: SummerWhen to plant: SpringPlanting notes: Plant it in moisture-retentive soil.No list is absolute, but this is my tried and tested top dozen perennials. Out of them all, I have had only two Lucifer montbretia flowers nibbled one year. Other species and varieties of the same plants are likely to be equally deer resistant, but these are the ones I have personal experience with. Tip: Keep a reference of deer-resistant plants in the car for impromptu nursery visits. I find the list by Rutgers to be a good general guide, even if I have found some discrepancies in my own garden.

Pincushion Flower (Scabiosa spp) A nearly indefatigable bloomer, this easy-growing perennial produces lavender-blue, deep blue, white or pink flowers from early summer to early fall. It’s deer resistant and tough. The plant’s common name refers to its resemblance to small pincushions. For best effect, plant it in containers or in groups near the front of beds and borders. Deadhead for even longer blooming. USDA zones: 3 to 11 Water requirement: Drought tolerant, though it prefers humus-rich, moist soil Light requirement: Full sun. Can handle partial shade in the southern United States. Mature size: 10 to 24 inches tall and wide
