Q.

Can this plant be saved?

My beautiful ornamental red banana that grew about 6 feet this year fell over yesterday. Upon investigation a gopher is the culprit. Is there any saving this beauty? Root hormone?

Root hormone will not do it... Although there is some damage, it will likely recover. This season will probably be a wash, though. Here is an article that will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/animals/eliminate-gophers.htm
