I have a couple of pieces of this. The one shown here grows in a lot of sun.

I have two of these. It came in as one plant but it had a tiny "nub" of a piece - a couple of roots and a couple of small leaves. The big piece went into shade and the nub went into direct sun. Now the nub is bigger than the original big piece.

Here is the "nub" in the 2013 season. Here is a group shot centered of City Slicker. On the left are the streaker Iron Gate Supreme and an "Iron Gate" that lost its streaking. Wintergreen is between the Iron Gates and City Slicker. There are a bunch of plants from the Lemon Lime family in this area. The white edged plant on the right is a Kogashiyama Fukurin that must love the sun. On the far right are some hardy orchids in bud. On the back edge behind the orchids are a ventricosa and a Soldier Boy.

Here's the Wintergreen.

And a little later getting buried by the Iron Gates.

Here is original big piece early in the 2014 season. The area was ravaged by voles but they missed some - Wintergreen with Yesterday's Memories on its right. That's Lakeside Old Smokey in the foreground with Sweet Home Chicago.
