I love cosmos, but can't plant them where I want to due to the deer and/or groundhog.
Is there a plant that has a cosmos-like flower that isn't at least on a "love-to-eat" list?
I don't know of anything exactly cosmos like, but there are all kinds of Daisies if that is close enough. Chrysanthemums that look like daisies, golden marguerite (anthemis), Coreopsis that look like daisies....
Although, Cosmos are on the same deer resistant lists as these, so if your deer are hungry enough to eat cosmos, these may get nibbled too.
