Bogs, lake shores, and swales, in sandy or peaty, acidic soils.

Admitted to our flora with trepidation; many of our specimens are sterile and seem clearly to be the primary hybrid V. lanceolata × V. macloskeyi, however, some collections do appear to be fertile. The hybrid V. blanda × V. lanceolata, suspected to be the identity of at least one Michigan collection, would key here, but be distinguishable by slight pubescence on the leaves.
