Forests and thickets, with cedar, fir, oak, aspen, pine, birch, and other trees, particularly along borders, clearings, and banks; often in sandy or rocky ground, occasionally in swamps, especially cedar. The Ingham Co. collection seems quite out of range, but is very old (L. H. Bailey in 1887, GH).

The leaves are tapered to a sessile or subsessile base, which is generally densely pubescent, while in L. dioica it is glabrous.
