This plant is mainly known from the limestone areas of the west of Ireland, but it also grows in Northern Ireland on Rathlin Island, where it was first discovered in the 1960s. The first reports of the occurrence of the plant on Rathlin Island were not taken seriously until it was independently rediscovered in 1980. The plant grows in heathy pasture, usually near basalt outcrops.

All names: Ajuga pyramidalis L.
