Duranta repens

I just purchased 3 duranta repens. I live in zone 8a. I plan to plant them outdoors with plenty of sun. Here are my questions.
1. Will I need to protect them from frost?
2. Are they deer resistant?
3. How large will they grow?

In your area, they are treated as an annual. They will not survive a frost. You may either bring them indoors, or let them die off outside. It is always best to assume that deer and rabbits will eat your crops. There are things they should not eat, that I have witnessed them destroy. And ,lastly, they will grow about 10 feet tall!
