Nothing hurts them except deer!  I used to have a lovely bank of them, but 
the deer have eaten them down so consistently for years that there are hardly 
any left.  I can remember beautiful stands of them along the roads, and there 
was a time when we picked the buds from those beside our pond for stir-fries.  
Yum!  But no more.  In the past 20 years the deer have multiplied so extremely 
that our whole style of plantings has had to change.  Now if the deer would 
only eat garlic mustard!
