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.

Although the populations of this species outside its native range are separated from its native range by some distance, and this species is rare and often threatened towards the borders of its range, we marked it as "Expanded" rather than "Introduced" because it tends to be a weedy plant that favors disturbed areas, and because it is not usually planted intentionally.
