Is coleus deer resistant?

philipw2(7 MD/DC)March 30, 2009

Last year the deer discovered my yard, I had minimal but strategic damage--ie all the daylily and low-lying hydrangea blossoms. Not much hosta damage...yet.

I was wondering if deer would leave coleus alone?

Typically they leave them alone in my garden; however, when we were in a drought a year or so back, they sampled them along with other plants they normally don't bother with.

Deer will eat anything when nothing else is available. I'll eat over cooked broccoli if nothing else is available.
