>The deer seem to stay away from my iris, but I do have to sacrafice my apples from the tree and my rose bushes.  They come right into my yard and 
eat the roses and apples. They strip the leaves and apples right from the 
tree or eat them off the ground.  I have never had any of my iris bothered by 
them.  There are products made from the urine of mountain lions available 
which do keep the deer away.  I don't remember the name, but we were able to 
pick some up at the local nursery.
