This list will depend on how heavy the deer pressure is at your home, and also upon individual deer palates. In addition, if plants are along a deer path, they will be browsed when others will not. And, younger plants seem to invite more browse that established ones.
However, in general, here are some good choices:
Allium cernuum
Columbine
Jack in the pulpit
Butterflyweed
Baptisia
Coreopsis
Bleeding heart
Geranium maculatum
Helenium (sneezeweed)
Hibiscus
Lobelia cardinalis
Monarda
Phlox stolonifera
Packera (Golden groundsel)
Mayapple
Polemonium
Rudbeckia fulgida, hirta
Goldenrot
New England asters
Veronicastrum (Culver's root)
