Q.Are Lophospermum (Lofos) Deer Or Rabbit Resisant?

I had one of these plants a few summers ago here in Wisconsin and it did great in an urn on our deck. I would like to plant one by a chain link fence but won’t do so if it’s just going to get eaten off by the deer or rabbits. Thank you

It's not hardy in your area, so you could plant it in a container by the fence and move it inside during the winter. It wouldn't help with deer, but rabbits would have trouble reaching it.

I didn't find any lists that included lofos as deer or rabbit resistant, but those lists usually include the most common plants. And even if it were included on a list, hungry deer will eat about anything.
