Moist seepage sites, meadows, streambanks, fields and forests in the lowland and montane zones; common in S and coastal BC, infrequent northward; circumpolar, N to AK and YT, E to SW AB and S to WY and CA; Eurasia.
A shade-tolerant/intolerant, submontane to montane, Western North American forb distributed more in the Pacific than the Cordilleran region. Occurs on very moist to wet, nitrogen-rich soils within boreal, temperate, and cool mesothermal climates; its occurrence increases with increasing latitude and decreases with increasing elevation and continentality. Sporadic to plentiful in broad-leaved forests on water-receiving and water-collecting sites; occasionally inhabits disturbed sites. A nitrophytic species characteristic of Moder and Mull humus forms.
