Some rabbit resistant plants include Yarrow,Monkshood,Wormwood,Aster,Astilbe,Bellflower,Wild Indigo,Snakeroot,Autumn Crocus,Foxglove,Daylily,Leopards Bane,Meadow Sweet,Hosta,Red Hot Poker,Cranesbill Geranium, Iris, Bishops Hat(Epimedium),Narcissus, Yucca, Oriental Poppy, Lambs Ear,Sedum,Globe Flower,Meadow Sage,Bergenia, Pearly Everlasting. However, resistant does not mean "proof" so you may want to consider other approaches such as fencing the perennial garden, using repellents and possibly even live trapping the rabbit. Some gardeners also find that a pet dog or cat can be an effective deterrent. One more consideration is that there may be more than a mere bunny at work; wood chucks and deer also dine on many favorite plants.
