Elmer Fudd & Astilbe

August 5, 2011

When Lucy is on patrol I always think of Elmer Fudd, “Shh, I’m hunting wabbits!”

Still hunting squirrels

Instead of a recipe today, how about some advice – if you are having trouble with rabbits eating all your plants & don’t want to have a pet Lucy or Moxie stand guard, plant Astilbe. Rabbits will not eat astilbe.


I have watched hostas disappear down to the root. I have seen begonias, day lilies & a host of other plants become salad for the giant rodents. But they never touch the astilbe! Astilbe comes in a variety of colors & they are perennials – you never have to plant them again!
