This text is copyrighted by the Bakers and may not be reproduced without permission.

ORIGIN/HABITAT: Europe and Asia. This orchid grows in the boreo-alpine and temperate zones east to Kamchatka, south to the Pyrenees and Appenines. It is rather widespread and sometimes abundant in the mountains, but is rarer elsewhere. Plants grow in full sun on soils that are alkaline to acidic and may be found on dry or damp substrates. They grow in poor short grasslands, in montane fens, and sometimes in open woodland at elevations up to 8850 ft. (2700 m).
