I cut several invasive rose of Sharon (H. syriacus) plants at soil level. Will they be able to regenerate, or do they propagate strictly by seed?. Thank you.

I can guarantee they will be back. They may already be back. Smiling

CAREFULLY brush some full strength brush killer onto each cut stem with a small paint brush. Don't get any on the soil.

Next time....
Don't cut them off.... Cutting trees off and leaving stumps makes them difficult or impossible to dig.
Rose of Sharon dig very easily.... If the entire plant is there to use as leverage.... You might could still dig out the root with a mattock.
I would encourage to go the route of least harm.
