I'm reading a book about deterring deer, having moved into deer territory. One of the plants that may repel them is an old favorite of mine, Russian sage-perovskia atriplicifolia. I'd LOVE to have some again, and mine suckered like an octopus, and I gave away starts by just cutting off a sucker and digging them up. Wondering if anyone has rowdy plants they'd be willing to dig me some suckers off of. I can pay shipping.

I'm trying to think if I have anything interesting to trade. I do have some tie dye type pattern silk scarves around, left from last time I was selling them. If you look at my profile, the background picture is one of them, if that style is interesting, I can find pictures of some I have.

Hoping someone wants to prune off suckers for me!!

:D

Russian sage? Isn't that another name for tumbleweed?

Russian thistle is tumbleweed.
Russian sage looks like this:



I miss mine, and deer seem to not like highly fragrant things, and that is intensely fragrant. I am hoping to put it around my baby fruit trees (as well as a ring of fence) to protect them.
 
Watchya got in that poodle gun? Anything for me? Or this tiny ad?
