Pink Elf is like a pinch of pixie magic for your garden—it makes everything a little more whimsical. In spring, it sends up delicate pink blooms with deep rose centers that are so beguiling they look like icing roses on a cake. Best of all, this petite charmer is quite deer resistant and makes an excellent ground cover as well.

Being compact has its perks: the smaller size lets you place it just about anywhere in part shade and well-drained soil. This is an adaptable and hardy perennial, despite its delicate appearance. Beautiful in foliage and flower, it deserves a place of honor in the shade garden. These sweet flower is also deer resistant so no need to worry about it getting nibbled on in your beds. No cutting garden is complete without it, so grow some fun with Pink Elf. Zones 5-8. (Source: Wayside Gardens)
