Introduced or Not Present

This tentative map is based on our own research. It may have limited data on Canada and/or Mexico, and there is some subjectivity in our assignment of plants as introduced vs. expanded. Read more in this blog post.

We found conflicting information on whether this species is native to the US or not; however BONAP and the AL and FL Plant Atlases oll consider it introduced. If it is not native to the US, then its range in the US is separated from its native range in South Mexico southward, by a long distance, hence why we did not mark it Expanded. It is widely planted in gardens and has probably established from garden escapes. We have yet to build the portion of its map in Mexico.
