I am wanting to put out some lantana this year but do not know if the deer will leave them alone.

There is no such thing as a deer-resistant plant, and when deer populations are high and food becomes scarce, deer may feed on plants that are thought to be deer-tolerant. However, deer generally do not like plants with pungent aromas, such as lantana.
