    With regard to thryallis, I have had this plant for about 5 yrs. It reliably comes back from root when it freezes back; then I discovered that I don’t need to cut it back after it “dies” from cold–it actually releafed and thereby retained its full size instead of taking a couple of years to regain its size after being cut back. The deer have never touched it. The deer actually snacked on Oregon grape holly in the same bed for the first time this past summer but did not touch the thryallis. My only disappointment with this plant is that it doesn’t seem to have one bird, bee, or butterfly ever to visit it. Unless there are moths feeding on it at night, I don’t know why this is categorized as a bird, bee, butterfly plant. Am I missing something? Thanks, Beverly

    I just love, love Golden Showers Thryallis. I’ve had problems with deer and this is the ONLY plant they leave alone. So add this drought tolerant specimen to your garden.
