Native or Not Present

This map is based on our research. We have checked its accuracy to Level 3 ecoregions. Although this plant occurs somewhere in each of these regions, it may only occur in a small part of some or all of them.


The common name of this species is highly misleading; not only has it never been reported in Illinois, but it is exceedingly rare in the adjacent states; the heart of its range and only place where it is more common and widespread is much farther east. Unfortunately, we found no other common names in use for this plant.
