Headless Impatiens!

Last year the deer didn't touch my bed of impatiens...but this year I awoke to find four decapitated!
These are varigated New Guinea and I was wondering if there's any chance of them surviving. The stem and bottom leaves are left...seems whoever it was just wanted the tasty flowers!
Any hope?

Yes if they still have some leaves they will grow back. Just think of it as an over done pinching. :)Its just the wild. They were build to live through the experience of animals eating them. What doesnt kill us only makes us stronger.

RE: Headless Impatiens!

Thanks for the info. Hope springs eternal! Is there anything I should do to help them along?
