Answer #1 · Maple Tree's Answer · Hi Ginny-By Sky Flower I'm assuming you are asking about a variety of Duranta. Unfortunately very few plants are actually deer proof especially when desired foods for deer are scarce. Some plant files indicate the Sky flower is resistant to deer but this seems only to be true as long as no other favorite plant foods are available. I have read where in areas that are densely populated with deer these plants were eaten within just a couple of days with the berries being eaten first. I also have not found this shrub to be noted on any deer resistant lists I have researched. Knowing what I do, If you have a fair population of deer I would protect this plant if possible if you decide to plant it in your landscape. I noted a link below to a previous question and answer regarding this plants resistance to deer that may help also. The answers note a few products you may be interested in using to help with repelling the deer.
