Count your lucky stars. Deer don't touch the leaves (they have all of my hosta for that ) but as the day before the buds would open, they will be mowed to the last bud. Which really irks me, since I had 20+ stems emerging, and was really looking forward to a great show.Really? I have never had problems with anything eating daylilies; but I have definitely had deer eating other plants
Deer have good memories, and will return year-after-year for something they like. Unfortunately, that appears to be the case for my day lilies... they must be watching for the buds to appear. I don't see deer as Bambi - I see them as ravenous plant wolves, preying on innocent defenseless plants. A pack of those plant wolves seems to call my yard home.
