Peony plant mowed down - Help!

I had a growing peony bush, probably about 6" high. My neighbor ran over it with his mower. Is it done in or will it try to grow again?

It just about breaks your heart, doesn't it. I've had that happen to me by the subdivision grounds crew. Mine happened midway through the year and it didn't grow back that summer, but the following year it was doing fine.

This early in the season, yours might try to grow a few shoots, but I wouldn't expect much from them. Next year, it will probably grow back just fine.

This weekend, a new shoot from the ground on my tree peony somehow got broken. I think it was either a dog or rabbit or kid...but it hurt to see the damage done.

That's kind of what I thought would happen houdinii. Thanks for your post!
