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.

We mark the Kentucky population, which likely originated from garden escapes, as introduced because it is separated from the native range and we see no evidence that native populations are expanding. However, this represents a subjective judgment call because this population is not that far from native populations, and there are also gaps in this population's native range.
