Lakes, ponds, river margins, streams.
In the southern Lower Peninsula, this species is sometimes found in the same lakes as N. variegata, but it does not extend very far north in the state.
It is quite typical for the large leaves of this species to be emergent in shallow water, unlike those of N. variegata which are always floating.
