Johnson’s Nursery, takes pride in bringing our clients quality, locally grown nursery stock. We are dedicated to providing a diverse selection of landscape plants for the Midwest. Part of that selection is a wide variety of native trees, shrubs, evergreens, vines and perennial flowering plants. Wisconsin offers a rich flora from which to draw. The eastern deciduous forests of North America extend into Wisconsin and blend with the coniferous forests of the north and the prairie grasslands of the west, creating an amazing collage of plant communities. Wisconsin native plants are beautiful. They offer all of the color and aesthetic interest that we could need. They are also very functional, having evolved over time to flourish in our environment. Using native plants connects us to our state’s natural heritage and creates unique, charismatic landscapes. When we plant native plants, not only do we preserve the vegetation that was once there, but also the countless other wildlife such as birds, insects, mammals, fungi and more. Native plants can be used in landscapes in a variety of ways. They can be incorporated into more traditional landscapes or a designated part of a landscape can be converted into a native garden.

Deer Resistant Plants

Use this list to find suggestions for plants that seem to be less palatable to deer. These plants have been observed to be less likely damaged by deer, but none of them are immune to deer browsing. Under the right circumstances, deer will eat almost any plant.

Note: The above mentioned trees may not taste good to deer, but bucks will rub their antlers on all young, smooth tree trunks, causing severe damage and even death to immature trees through girdling.
