Sümbülü, Çayır Salebi [TR], Lax-Flowered Orchid [EN] is one of about 150 Turkish Orchidaceae species.
The subspecies O. l. palustris is found in the northern and western parts of the range of the species, as far north as Gotland in southern Sweden, and extends eastwards across central Europe, (in the Swiss Alps up to 1150 m altitude) to Turkiye, Russia and the Caucasus, and beyond as far as Afghanistan.
In N Africa (Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco). Rare in the Mediterranean region.
