In many regions there seems to have been an explosion in the rabbit population. And like deer (especially fawns) they are adorable to look at. Unfortunately the damage they can do to our gardens is not so adorable. It is downright sickening.
One way to reduce our heartache is to steer clear of perennials that ring the loudest dinner bell for these four-footed hoppers.
