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.

Several Commelina species occur in North America, both native and introduced; this species has the widest distribution of the introduced species, and extends the farthest north of any of the species, being the only Commelina in the northern part of its range.

Of the native species, C. erecta has the widest distribution and C. diffusa and C. virginica also are widely distributed, but all three have a more southerly distribution, although they overlap with this species over a wide area.
