They come from rocky habitats in Europe, the USA and North Africa and have been widely cultivated to form showy, colourful 2-lipped flowers. The classification of this genus is still under contention and different sources report differing numbers of species (2 vs. 21). Many cultivars and hybrids exist and are commonly grown.
