Geum coccineum was discovered by Sibthorp on the Bithynian Olympus (Ulu Dağ) in NW Anatolia. It occurs in the C Balkan Peninsula and in N Anatolia eastwards to the Erzurum area, generally along creeks and in seepage meadows at subalpine levels on non-calcareous mountains, with species such as Caltha palustris, Cardamine acris and Doronicum austriacum. It is commonly cultivated as a garden ornamental in Europe.
