This is a small terrestrial herb with a tall, slim erect stem. It is distributed throughout the north- ern hemisphere from Scandinavia across Russia and China to Canada and northern USA. It grows in shady, leaf-strewn, humus-rich, moist ground in coniferous and deciduous forests or ravines and hill slopes.
The life history of the orchid is very interesting. Seed released in autumn stay dormant until spring, after which they germinate. During summer, the seedlings reach 1 mm in diameter but they acquire no roots or leaves until the next summer, their fourth growing season. Individual plants may take up to 8 years to ﬂower, after which the stem dies down, leaving a cluster of axillary shoots which then form a colony.
