    That’s a great q on deer resistance, I’m actually not sure, but my roses get nibbled on pretty hard this time a year- they are about 50 yards from my cosmos, so pretty close. The cosmos don’t get eaten like the roses. Also, we had mast Japanese beetles eating everything, but they didn’t eat the cosmos.

    They want full sun and hot! In milder climates they actually act as perennials. We are in New England and they don’t hold up to any frost. They will self seed though, which is a plus!
