what species of impatiens are deer resistant
I planted impatiens last year because I was told they are deer proof; however, the deer in my area don't know that and had a lot of wonderful meals at my gardening budget. Is there a particular species of impatiens that deer don't eat, or what type of flowers would you suggest? Thank you.

For the most part, they are deer resistant. That being said, no matter what the plant, if a deer is very hungry, it will eat almost anything. This is why they say deer resistant rather than deer proof.
Here is a link to a site with a list of deer resistant plants:
