Range - Expand

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.

This species is native to southern Mexico and southward, and has expanded its range north in Mexico, but its range in the US is discontiguous and as such we mark it Introduced; we have yet to build the portion of its map in Mexico.
