Hi Rosalie,

It appears that deer will eat anything, if they are hungry.  A friend had 
deer eat the new shoots of TBs as they were coming up in the spring.  For us, 
they don't bother the dwarf irises--its too much trouble for them to bend down 
that far.  However, they do occasionally nip off the TB flowers and frequently 
nip off the Japanese flowers.  I think they don't notice the Siberians because 
the blooms are smaller.
