A small perennial herb found naturalised in two distinct habitats: montane grassland and streamsides, and in the lowlands on roadsides, river banks and in rough grassland. Some upland localities are very remote. Lowland to 455 in Glen Doll (Angus).
A. conjuncta was once regarded as native in its upland sites, but these are now thought to be deliberate introductions. It has been cultivated in Britain as a rockery plant since c. 1800, and was known from Glen Doll by 1837. It was mapped by Perring & Sell (1968), since when its range has increased slightly.
Native of the Jura and S.W. Alps.
