A calciphile of moist, sandy, gravelly, or marly shores, ditches, meadows, marshes, interdunal hollows; clay banks, fens, cedar and tamarack swamps; rock crevices, ledges, and pools. Often locally abundant, forming carpets of colorful blue.
The corolla is blue with a white “eye,” sometimes quite pale and occasionally all white [f. leucantha Rouleau]. Depauperate plants of L. inflata or L. spicata may sometimes be confused with this species or L. erinus.
