Deer resistant perennials

Ha. I know. Deer will eat anything if they're hungry. But still, there are some plants they'll ignore if they're not so hungry. Anyone have comments about any of the plants on the list below? A gardener near my home is giving away or selling things on the list. I'm in Western NY. She's not in deer territory, so she can't be of any assistance.
$1 per plant. I see my future. Half my lawn gone by next week. :-)

Very invasive in TN - if I had deer I'd be begging them to eat it.

Deer left them alone in VT

Can I do a deal with you for these - maybe some more interesting daylilies or sedums.
So to deer resistant - nothing truly is, but my local deer rarely bother my garden in preference to my lawn or the stands of jewel weed that dot the area.

If by "do a deal" you mean ship them to you, I can't really help with that, Cheryl. I don't have time anytime soon for creative boxing & shipping. Maybe the lady selling them would be interested if you contact her directly.

As far as daylillies & sedums, those are two plants that are pretty much worthless in my yard because of the creature snacking. I just moved a "Hyperion" daylilly inside the veg garden fence so I can finally enjoy some flowers after 4 years of deer carnage. I don't have room for any more in that part of the garden.

Now, the deer will snack on my daylilies, but the sedums - never ever.

I am finishing up a full-sun stone wall and want some sedums near the top. Thanks for letting me know about the deer. Are sedums resistant to slugs/snails too?
Maybe deer have eaten my daylilies, but from the number of blooms it sure doesn't look like it.
