I had 3 young plants about 10 inches, with only leaves. I put 2 in the yard and one at the edge of the carport, The deer ate the tops off. Will they ever come back.

On plant Echium pininana



I used to have trouble with deer in the UK and once they had taken a plant it never returned.I had to stock proof my garden as this was the only way to keep anything alive and growing except for leeks, they didnt like those.

As to your Echiums - no, I think that's it, as these plants are biennials. Sorry.
