Perennials that you can grow in full sun (at least 6 hours of direct light) in your area and that are somewhat deer-resistant are: Butterfly bush (Buddleia spp.), Cardinal flower (Lobelia cardinalis), Delphinium spp., Foxglove (Digitalis purpurea), Lupine hybrids, Oregon grapeholly (Mahonia aquifolium), and Sweet Autumn Clematis. As for shrubs, try Buxus sempervirens (Common Box), Forsythia and American Arborvitae (Thuja occidentalis). Groundcovers that deer generally leave alone include Ajuga and Speedwell (Veronica spicata). Deer like most ornamental grasses, so I wouldn't advise planting them.
