The species can be found near the edges of forests or in clearings; it is also a common "uninvited guest" in shaded lawns.
This may be the species mentioned in Shakespeare's famous lines:

"I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine"
