We hired out a guy to weedwack. One of my casualties was a young daylily which was a division from a friend, newly set out this spring. It had not yet bloomed and I forget if it even had any buds on it. It is now cut to the ground. What are the chances for this to survive? I just went to check on it, and there are two small leaf stalks poking out of the ground next to the main fan that got demolished. That fan is all chewed up but I suppose may try to regrow itself and/or perhaps pop up next spring. I'll just keep it watered through the remainder of this season and see what happens I guess.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

I think the plant's chances of surviving are great, I cut mine down intentionally when they get rust really bad. As long as it is not cut down so low as to damage the crown it should come back with new green leaves. IT will set back the blooming time normally.
