I've never grown this myself, but when I was a kid I saw it in the wild in southern New Hampshire. It was growing under dense mixed forest in a deep gorge. The plants were scattered rather thinly over several acres. If memory serves, they were less than one meter high, quite a bit less.

I second the previous post....Pretty prostrate, definitely 1m or less and spreading. Never seen it in anything other than dense forest....and it's never a dense shrub. Didn't think of it as rare though, it's in every moist forest I've hiked in.

That godzilla comment was too funny. I agree it looks so tropical. I feel like my neighbors grass is about to go up in flames any day!

It grows where i grew up in Ohio. It grew as large prostrate shrubs covering entire steep hillsides and cliffs where the deer can't get them. they grew under Betula allegheniensis, Fagus grandifolia, Tsuga canadensis and Acer saccharum on north facing slopes.
