The field guide, 'Plants of Kamchatka', by V. Yakubov describes the habitat where L. debile finds home as “herb meadows among stone birch trees, and in fields of 'Empetrum' (crowberries) up to about 1000 meters” (3200 feet)". The stems of L. debile average about 3 feet with some whorled leaves in the middle ranges of the stem. Produces from 1 to 10 pendant, orange-red flowers that are about 2 inches in diameter. The greatest distribution of L. debile is on the Kamchatka Peninsula of Russia (Siberia). Also has been reported in the Kuril Islands and to a lesser extent Japan.
