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 plant is occasionally cultivated in gardens, and can escape into the wild. It has tended to escape in such a manner mostly relatively close to its native range, and we have marked these populations expanded, although some of them are isolated enough that they could perhaps be marked introduced. We mark the California population introduced because it is more isolated.
