There are really no plant you can use to deter deer and rabbits but you can try using one of the repellants on the market. Ropel or Deer Away are both bitter tasting compounds and will usually stop the nibbling once the critters get a mouthful. If that doesn't work, you may have to resort to a physical barrier such as fencing in your roses to protect them.
