yesterday I fiddled with the peonies coming up, one has two or three shoots of rose coming up from the same spot. I don't see a root ball or anything telling me there should be a rose planted there.

Should I try to dig the rose to find the ball and transplant or should I just cut it back?

PS. Hubby mowed a peony (I think) some of the shoots are coming back up...will the peony recover? Its at the base of a sapling of some sort, I didn't even know it was a peony.

i lived in a house where my 'then' boyfriend weed wacked his peonies for years before I got there and told him what they were. They'll be fine.
If you cut back the rose it will just keep coming back. Unless you paint the cut end with something like brush be gone to kill it.
If you want to save it you'll have to dig and seperate it from the peony and replant them both. There may not be a rose root ball if its a runner from another plant. Are you sure its a rose? It could be a berry a bird dropped a seed from.
