I have not grown it myself but have seen it many, many times in the wilds of northern Michigan. A classic plant of the boreal forest, and to some extent, the transition zone between the boreal forest and the eastern deciduous forest. It is a delicate beauty, in the upper great lakes, found with Cornus canadensis, starflower, fringed polygala, and lots of rare orchids. It is primarily a plant of acid organic soils, and is commonly found growing over rotting logs covered with moss.

I would think the great problem for you in cultivating this plant would be summer heat. Unless you are in the mountains where you are, it seems unlikely that it would tolerate the warm summer temps. But that is a guess from knowing it in its native habitat, not from having grown it.
