Peony - planted but roots broke

Hi everyone,

I bought a lovely peony yesterday but as I took it out of the container to plant, the majority of it’s healthy roots broke - eek! I’ve never planted a peony before and didn’t realise how fragile it would be, so just wondering, without the majority of its roots, will it make it!? Anything I can do to help it along the way? Thanks everyone!

    only one way to find out: plant it and wait

    I'd agree with @Hostafan1, but when you say they broke - that seems odd.
    Did the plant look healthy otherwise?
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
