ORIGIN/HABITAT: The United States. The area of distribution extends eastward from east Texas, southern Arkansas, northward just west of the Mississippi River to southern Canada and includes the entire region east of the Mississippi from Florida to southeastern Canada, including Newfoundland. In the north, plants are found in sunny marshes and bogs where the small corm is buried rather shallowly in the moist, rich, acid soil or moss. In the south, plants may be found in pinelands with the corm buried rather deeply in sandy soil.
