This is a rare, but widespread wetland species. There are several populations in south-central Colorado and in Wyoming where plants can be locally common. It is nearly extirpated from its entire range south of Colorado. It was documented as extant in 2003 in Presidio County, Texas (Poole et al. 2007).
