Habitat / Range
Dry roadsides, fields, meadows and open forests in the lowland to subalpine zones; common throughout BC except the Queen Charlotte Islands and adjacent coast; N to AK, YT and NT, E to NF and S to GA, TX, NM and CA.
A shade-intolerant, submontane to montane, transcontinental North American forb distributed more in the Cordilleran than the Pacific region. Occurs on very dry to moderately dry, nitrogen-medium soils within boreal, temperate, and cool mesothermal climates. Its occurrence increases with increasing continentality and temperature, and decreases with increasing elevation and precipitation. Usually inhabits unshaded and strongly drained, watershedding sites with exposed mineral soil or thin Mor humus forms. Characteristic of moisture-deficient sites.
