Are Annual Flowers Animal Resistant?

Animals, especially rabbits and deer, frequently snack on some garden annuals while ignoring others. Deer-resistant annuals include snapdragons, salvia, cosmos, marigolds and zinnia. Both deer and rabbits avoid begonias, ageratum, vinca and geraniums. Rabbits also stay away from four o'clocks and spider flowers.
