A widespread terrestrial orchid of eastern North America, they are rare in Florida, appearing only in Liberty County in open, wet sites. The range extends west into Texas, Oklahoma and Nebraska and north into Minnesota, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
Spiranthes cernua blooms typically appear from August through October in most of the range, and into the winter in Florida. The narrow leaves may or may not be present when flowering.
