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.

This species is occasionally cultivated in gardens, and has escaped into the wild to form sustaining populations. We have marked all these populations as expanded; most of them are relatively near this species' native range, but the ones in New England could perhaps be marked introduced because they are separated by a larger distance than some of the other populations.
