Almost any kind of forests, though less often in beech-maple or oak-hickory stands than in coniferous or mixed forests; often associated with pine and hemlock, sometimes in moist ground and sometimes on hummocks and stumps in cedar or white pine-hardwood swamps. Often in sandy, somewhat acidic soils.

The commonest Goodyera in the southern half of the Lower Peninsula, and the only one in the southernmost portions.
