Imagine that you are faced with a decision. Change the entire plant palette in the dozen backyard garden beds you love, or quit gardening altogether. Meet the tenacious gardener who traded out roses and hostas for only deer-resistent ornamentals in what is now a cutting garden.

Plants mentioned: Impatiens balsamina (touch-me-not, jumping Betty), Rudbeckia hirta (gloriosa daisy), Vernonia galamensis L. (ironweed), Lysimachia clethroides (gooseneck loosestrife), garland marigolds, hardy hibiscus. Good to Know: like cosmos and cleome, balsam reseeds prolifically.
