Is the photinia bush deer resistant? I live in the foothills and deer are always in my yard. If they are not deer resistant, can you recommend another bush? I have considered oleander, but I am not too fond of them.

Unfortunately, these are not deer resistant. However, you could try placing deer-resistant plants around the perimeter of your home or even protect the shrub with a cage. Deer usually steer clear of any plant that is fuzzy or prickly, extremely aromatic, or excessively tall or short.
