I wish there were a specific list to share with you! Research indicates that plants with milky sap and plants with thick or hairy leaves are typically left alone. Lady's Mantle and Hosta are generally left alone by these pests. You might try scouring the garden center, touching the leaves of plants to find similar leafed plants. Wish I could offer more information!
