The origin/habitat information below is supplied courtesy of Charles and Margaret Baker

The following information is based on the name of the plant provided by the donor, and assumes that the name is correct. If the plant has been misidentified, then the following information may not be correct.
This text is copyrighted by the Bakers and may not be reproduced without permission.

ORIGIN/HABITAT: Endemic to Scandinavia. Plants are found in northern Norway, central Sweden, and neighboring regions of Norway. Populations are local and rather rare. No other information available for habitat location and elevation. Insufficient information is available for the selection of representative climate data. Hawkes (1965) indicated that these plants may be grown as a temperate species Habenaria in a shady spot in rich, well-drained soil. Therefore, the following climate table and cultural suggestions for Habenaria repens Nuttall are presented as a possible starting point, but should be used with a great deal of caution.
