The Rose Pogonia is the only member of the genus (of about 10 species) that occurs in the USA, where it is found in the eastern half of the country, though it is becoming rare. It grows in the same sort of bogs that are home to Sarracenia, and is threatened by the same combination of drainage and development that is destroying populations of pitcher plants.
I grow it among the Sarracenia, and it seems to prosper.
