I just found the Jiovi website and did a search for deer resistant shrubs.  Northern Bayberry (Myrica pensylvanica) looks interesting to me.  Wax producer, semi-evergreen, bee food, nitrogen fixing, living fence and it likes sandy crap soil.

I'm looking for plants for two parts of my living fence.  Any ideas on if this will work for me?

Location #1:
15' south of an E/W row of middle aged pine trees (competition?)
Sandy soil
Full sun
Deer pressure

Location #2
Within the juglone range of a few butternut and black walnut trees
Full sun
Sandy soil
High and quite dry (but still WI so it's not that dry)
Deer pressure

I'm leaning towards option #2 above and they should arrive this week.  Anyone know if they will cohabitate with juglone?
