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.

This species is widely agreed upon to be native to the Pacific coast of Mexico, but also has a discontiguous population in Texas and has recently spread into more of the southeastern to south-central US. Our map reflect's POWO's classification of this species as native in Texas but expanded east and north of there, which fits with BONAP's maps. We marked the new range Expanded because it is largely contiguous with the Texas range, separated only by short distances. We have yet to build the portion of this species' map in Mexico.
