The harebell grows in a wide variety of environments from moist forests to rocky ground. They tend to bloom in profusion, casting a purplish hue where they grow. It is believed that Cree people would chop and dry the roots to use in a compress to stop bleeding and reduce swelling. The roots have been chewed to treat heart and lungs and used in an infusion ear drops or an eye wash.
