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.

Closely related to Broadleaf Enchanter's Nightshade (Circaea lutetiana), with which it can hybridize where the ranges overlap. C. lutetiana has a more southerly distribution and is found at lower altitudes where ranges overlap.

The broader evening primrose species contains numerous other species.
