Years ago I bought a root that was supposed to be Thunderbolt. It turned out to be Gay Blade.
Some time later, I bought two potted Thunderbolts and planted one in a goodly amount of sun and the other in high shade. The one with lots of sun grew much faster and stronger. To be fair, the one in high shade also is thirty feet from a large green ash tree.
This is the one planted in more sun. It's not quite out but still standing through lots of storms hereabout. One of the two produced a green eye. I took that off and threw it in the woods. . boyo, talk about a tough plant. Deep shade and brush doesn't seem to bother it. . one tough hombre.
