Yes, it certainly is. But in my experience it is as difficult to please as
the other members of the genus are easy. 


I've tried to grow it as a garden plant, and while it persists for several
years, it grows only haltingly, does not increase and eventually disappears.


The site where I've tried it is very shady, and my plants grew in the
company of other woodland plants such as Asarum, Podophyllum, Trillium and
various ferns. 


Does anyone who grows this plant well have any suggestions for my next
