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 weedy plant favors open, barren sites; its native range was originally limited to the west, but it has expanded greatly in the east owing to humans creating more open habitats that it prefers. It is less common in the southeast, probably because of its preference for alkaline soils.
