Can mowed peonies still be divided??

I was planning on dividing peonies at the cemetary, but when I went out this week the person who mows had either mowed them off or weed-eaten them, The stubs are about one inch tall. Is it still possible to divide? and if so, do I need to do anything other than the usual?

Absolutely...if fact, I mow prior to dividing; saves energy cutting them off by hand.

professorroush: thanks for the info. I realized after I thought about it that the foilage probably didn't matter, but I've never divided peonies.

Your web site is interesting, especially want to read more about the roses.
