Muddy or wet ditches, streams, springy banks, borders of swamps and ponds; moist openings, trails, and roadsides in forests. This species is found in western North America from British Columbia southward, primarily in the mountains.

This is a lax, ± prostrate plant, with musky odor and very clammy pubescence.
