    I would appreciate some recomendations for the following conditions: Zone 7, full sun, moist soil, and something that is not especially tasty to deer. I need one or two small trees, a few large shrubs and several smaller shrubs and a ground cover. The showier the better.

    Thanks for the help

    Go to Home Depot...buy a book called 1..2..3 landscaping. It has a lot of common plants that are made for your zones.

    I would reccomend the "Southern Living Garden Book".

    Thanks for the info. I have several good reference books but I was wondering if any body had a "favorite" that had done well under similar conditions.

    I can only add, find some grounds that look good to you and find the plants in your reference books.
