Sadly, nothing is deer-proof. A hungry deer will nibble most any plant. As far as which camellia grows fastest, Camellia reticulata not only produces the largest flowers and densest growth, but is the tallest as well. Try 'Buddha' if you like rose pink flowers, 'Shot Silk' for light pink blooms, or 'Crimson Robe' for red flowers.
