Answer #1 · John Heider's Answer · Hi Louis-Very few plants are actually deer resistant. If food sources are scarce deer will eat most plants. Cooperative Extension services will normally put plants into 4 categories helping gardeners to know how probable it is that a plant could be damaged by deer. Plants in the Rarely Damaged and the Seldom Severely Damaged categories would be the best for gardens that are visited by deer. Those plants in the Occasionally Severely Damaged and Frequently Severely Damaged are preferred by deer and should only be planted where the plants can be protected by fencing or types of repellents. I noted a link below to an article that will give you this information regarding the Golden Euonymus (Euonymus japanicus. I would not consider this plant to be deer resistant if you have a fair population of deer in your area.

Please ask if you have any other questions.
