The Stunning Plant That'll Attract Birds And Repel Deer From Your Garden
Hameln fountain grass is a visually stunning option for any yard that’s easy to grow and maintain. It’s a popular nesting option for birds while also working as a deer repellent.
This grass isn’t toxic to deer, but the animals tend to avoid the plant due to its coarse texture. Place it on the outskirts of flower beds to deter deer from plants they do enjoy.
At the same time, Hameln provides birds with a nesting area protected from the elements and other animals due to its long arched ferns that give it a bushy-like density.
Despite being a smaller ornamental grass, Hameln can still grow up to 3 feet tall and 2 feet wide. Give it enough space, along with full sun and well-draining soil to keep it full.
