Habitat:  Growing in a canopy opening within a swamp of primarily Picea mariana with a few Larix laricina. Within the opening the conspicuous species include Alnus rugosa, Nemopanthus mucronata and Larix, with Ledum groenlandicum and Chamaedaphne in lower levels. The ground layer contains much Sphagnum moss and species typical for swamps in the area, including Carex disperma, C. trisperma, Vaccinium myrtilloides. V. oxycoccus, Coptis trifolia, Rubus pubescens, Cornus canadensis, Trientalis borealis.
 
Text:  Several thousand ramets were seen over a roughly triangular area of 100 ft per side. The plants seemed successful on sites ranging from those in full sun for part of the day to others in considerable shade under black spruce branches. Many plants flowered and green fruit were conspicuous in late June. Similar sites in the general area were searched with no further populations found. The population was first discovered by Kristin Westad on May 31, 1994, at which time the plants had not yet begun to flower. Additional collector(s): Garrity, Sue; Janke, Steve & Robinson, Pat.
