Q.Mayapples – accidently weed wacked!

Zone Kirkwood PA Zone 5 | Anonymous added on May 22, 2020 | Answered

Had some ill-informed helpers who cut down a HUGE swath of mayapples. Yesterday. So my question is will that disturb their regrowth for next year? The fact that they were cut down before their seeds dropped!
Thank you!

Since they spread by rhizomes; they shouldn't be affected greatly by the untimely "prune."
