can tree peony recover?
I have a NOID tree peony that is approximately 8 years old and was about 3-1/2 foot tall and wide. I say "was" because during the past winter voles girdled all of the stems and forced me to prune it back almost to the ground this spring. Is there any hope that it will grow back into something worth keeping? And I'm wondering if I should be on the watch for this severe pruning to cause the root stock to jump into a hyper-burst of growth? I'm used to dealing with roses; not sure what to expect from a tree peony so I could really use your expert advice. Thanks!
