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 infrequently planted in gardens; it is weedier than most of the other Monarda species. BONAP marks the Nebraska populations as adventive; we classify them as expanded because this species usually spreads on its own, and the region it has spread into has suitable conditions for its growth and it may expand more there. We mark the California population introduced because it is isolated by great distance.
