Is Anemone blanda gopher-resistant?
I live in a semi-wild foothills location. I plant shrubs, trees, and some perennials in gopher baskets, and do some intermittent trapping, but really the gophers will be with us forever. In our back garden area the little mounds pop up between the fruit trees and make a joke of our attempts to plant a native fescue swath.
I have thought of planting Anemone blanda in mixed blue shades as a stream sunning through a natural pathway, much as one would place rocks in imitation of a stream bed. The bulbs are said to be somewhat toxic, which made me think that the gophers would leave them alone just as they leave daffodils alone. Does anyone know from experience if this is true? I like the idea of the blue ribbon threading through.
