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 has been intentionally planted in pastures, but it is also weedy and readily escapes and spreads along roadsides. Its range has expanded most to the east along the Ohio river, but scattered populations are found around much of its range, including also in the west. We mark all of these as expanded because the populations are relatively connected to its native range, although the Utah and Nevada populations could perhaps be marked introduced.
