GardenSMART :: Ten No-No Plants if You Have Rabbits

Ten No-No Plants if You Have Rabbits

By Kerry Mendez for Plantskydd

One way to reduce our heartache is to steer clear of perennials that ring the loudest dinner bell for these four-footed hoppers.

New England and Michaelmas Asters (Aster novi-belgii and Aster novae-angliae)
Tall Phlox (Phlox paniculata)
Japanese Anemone (Anemone x hybrid)
Baby’s Breath (Gypsophila paniculata)
Balloon Flower (Platycodon grandiflorus)
Mountain Bluet (Centaurea montana)
Northern Maidenhair Fern (Adiantum pedatum)
Pincushion Flower (Scabiosa caucasica)
Gayfeather (Liatris spicata)
Tree Peony(Paeonia suffruticosa)
