Can I grow wintergreen as an indoor plant. Will it survive always warm or does it need frost to grow??

It does not need frost to grow, but it does need a cool winter rest to grow properly. We grow ours at about 45 F or 5 degrees Celsius in our greenhouses and they do just fine. Give less water during the cool rest.
