Re: Deer Proof Hosta?

I was recently speaking with a fellow who has a large hillside planted with
some very old sieboldiana type hostas.  He said he never had a problem with
deer.  Until he decided to add some other hostas to the hillside - Sum &
Substance among them.  He said within a week the newer hostas were eaten to
the ground, but the old sieboldiana types remained untouched by deer.
