Rich deciduous forests and river-bank thickets to dry upland oak-hickory forests, including disturbed borders.
In material too young (or fragmentary) to display the stalked fruit and mature pedicel, the linear stipules may be present. They are 6.5–10 (–12) mm long (rarely shorter), and the bracts in the inflorescence are similar although a bit shorter. In H. nudiflorum the stipules tend to be deciduous earlier, but are shorter (up to 3.5 mm) and the bracts in the inflorescence are likewise very small.
