Are celosias deer resistant?
Realizing that no plant is deer-proof, Rutgers University rates plants based on the likelihood of being damaged by deer. Plants in the Rarely Damaged and Seldom Severely Damaged categories would be best for landscapes prone to deer damage. Plants Occasionally Severely Damaged or Frequently Severely Damaged are often preferred by deer and should only be planted with additional protection such as the use of fencing.
Celosia is considered a Seldom Severely Damaged plant. Success of this plant in the landscape will depend on local deer populations and weather conditions.
