If you have gophers tunneling through your landscape, and they cut through the roots of your hopseed bush, you're likely to see aboveground damage such as wilting or dying portions of your plant. Gophers are reasonably indescriminate when it comes to tunneling under plants and through root systems so there's no guarantee your hopseed bush won't be affected. Best wishes with your garden!
