Native in the Pacific Northwest, west of the Cascades from British Columbia to California, from the coast to mid elevations. Found in the understory of conifer forests. This happy groundcover naturalizes where it wants in my gardens, typically in shady areas. After it blooms, I pull it all out to neaten up the bed, and it always returns the following spring.
