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 Canada, Greenland, and parts of Europe; we mark the US population introduced because it is separated from the native population by a large gap. We have yet to build the portion of its range map in Canada.
