Eurasia: Europe, Western Siberia, Asia and Central Asia. In Belarus the look (by origin Central European preborealny) meets sporadic across all territory, is the most rare in the Vitebsk Region where only two locations are known: in Lepelsky and Gluboksky districts. It is revealed also in the Grodno, Lidsky and Svislochsky districts of the Grodno Region, in Berezovsky, Brest, Ivanovskoye, Kobrin, Maloritsky and Pruzhansky districts of the Brest Region, in the Gomel, Zhitkovichsky, Zhlobinsky, Kormyansky, Lelchitsky and Mazyr districts of the Gomel Region, in Vileysky, Krupsky, Volozhinsky, Minsk, Myadelsky, Pukhovichyosky and Smolevichsky districts of the Minsk Region, in Krasnopolyyosky, Krichevsky, Osipovichsky, Slavgorod and Cherikovsky districts of the Mogilev Region. Earlier it was noted in vicinities of Mogilev, Novogrudk and Slutsk.
Deciduous and light coniferous forests, mainly on dry forest glades and edges, it is frequent among bushes. Prefers soils with a close bedding of carbonate breeds.
Blossoms in June - July, fructifies in August. Entomofil. Reproduction is seed, very seldom vegetative. Anemokhor. Mikoriza is developed poorly.
Number and tendency of its change:
Usually grows at small groups or single individuals, seldom forms quite numerous populations (for example, in vicinities of the lake. A corduroy road in Baranovichsky district). In some earlier known places of growth it is not found in recent years (for example, in territories of the existing botanical wildlife area of "Brishche" and the liquidated wildlife area "Dubrovka" in Krupsky district).
Major factors of threat:
The cabin of the wood of the main use with the subsequent economic transformation of lands, excessive pasturage of cattle, collecting plants on bouquets.
Grows in territories of national parks "Bialowieza Forest", "Pripyat" and "Narochansky", the Berezinsky biospheric reserve, and also the existing wildlife areas ("Glebkovka", "the Divin-Veliky Wood", "Zavishye", "Lukovo", "Pribuzhsky Polesia", "Sporovsky") and designed ("the Naliboksky dense forest"). It is cultivated in Botanical garden BGU. Periodic control of a condition of the known populations, search of new places of growth and, if necessary, the organization of their protection, creation of specialized botanical wildlife areas in places of mass growth of a look, prohibition or restriction in places of growth of anthropogenous influences, cultivation and reproduction of a dremlik in culture, artificial moving of a look in suitable natural ecotops are necessary.
