Our H. Ice Cream multiplies like crazy - but doesn't appear to be rhizomatous either

I really like Ice Cream. I planted it last summer and on August 2nd this past summer, it's looking relatively good in a spot that doesn't get much light and is prone to slug and earwig damage.

This is a really nice, perky plant. Here it is in 2014 - late July.

Here is my Ice Cream this AM. It split into two parts when I dealt with unruly Ostrich Fern roots a few years ago, I would guess this one is 4 years old and is in pretty deep shade.

This little plant gets abused in my garden - tree root competition & vole attack in 2014. But it's still here.

I got it in 2010.

Here it is in 2011.

And in 2015 when a falling tree nearly hit it.

Here it is with saw dust all around it from clearing the fallen pine tree.

2016 - this is a mature plant. I won't see much change from year to year.
