Bogs, fens, seeps on rock outcrops, moist to wet meadows and clearings, ditches, and other low, wet or seasonally wet habitats. This species has generally been lumped with Rhynchospora globularis in Virginia studies, and its distribution and status are incompletely known. It appears to have a somewhat more inland distribution than R. globularis and is frequent in the inner Coastal Plain and Piedmont. It appears to be rare but widely scattered in the mountains and infrequent or rare in the outer Coastal Plain.
