It is native primarily to northern North America, where it is found in Canada and the United States. There are also disjunct populations south in the Appalachian Mountains. Its preferred habitat is wet areas such as marshes and seeps, particularly in calcareous soils.It produces white-yellow flowers in the summer. An intermediate population that suggests a transition to the more southern Triantha racemosa is found in the New Jersey Pine Barrens.
