The term "deer-resistant" should probably be used very loosely because when deer populations are high and food becomes scarce, deer may feed on plants that are thought to be deer-resistant. However, deer generally do not like plants with pungent aromas, such as salvia.

If you are interested in other deer-resistant plant options, here is a comprehensive extension article for you to refer to:
