Rabbit-Resistant Plants

No plant can really be claimed to be rabbit-proof. Young rabbits investigate by nibbling many plants. They soon learn which plants are tasty and which ones to leave alone. In general, rabbits dislike very aromatic plants, plants that ooze caustic or milky sap, prickly plants, plants with spines, or plants with tough leathery leaves. The following is a list of plants which are considered rabbit-resistant.
