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 occasionally cultivated in gardens and can escape; it also can be weedy and spread on its own, establishing in roadside ditches and wet spots in pastures and abandoned fields. It can also be found in intact wild areas, both in its new and native range. We mark the entire new range as expanded because it is almost entirely contiguous with its native range.
