The plants in this genus tend to grow in wet places often, as in the photo actually in shallow still water. Most often the wet places will be near the sea so the vast majority of the records are from coastal areas of England, Wales Ireland and western Scotland. There is little in the eats of Scotland and it is found inland in southern England.

The Greeks thought this plant reminded them of the flowers of the vine which is what Oenanthe means.
