An annual of cultivated, waste and disturbed ground on dry soils, often occurring as a weed of heavily fertilised, broad-leaved crops. 0-320 m (Derbyshire).
L. hybridum shows a considerable increase in distribution compared with the 1962 Atlas, presumably due to its ability to exploit conditions of high fertility. However, it is often confused with L. purpureum, so may previously have been under-recorded. It is possibly still overlooked in some areas, and may be more common than the current map suggests.
As an archaeophyte L. hybridum has a European Temperate distribution.
