Anemone blanda and gophers

Does anyone know if gophers will eat Anemone blanda, or will they leave it alone? I have thought of planting a stream of these all in blue running down a summer-dry hillside, but it is in prime gopher territory. I will skip it if gophers will eat them.

RE: Anemone blanda and gophers

It's been said that gophers will eat Anemones.
And they 'won't' eat Agapanthus. Nor Narcissus.

Dwarf Agapanthus would tolerate the dry slope and give a later ribbon of blue.

Dwarf daffodils (perhaps white - either regular or hoop petticoat such as 'Nylon') could provide a foil for the munchers and cope with the summer dry. They usually come through either before or same time as A blanda in my area.
