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 name "Frostweed" is more widely used than "White Crownbeard", we prefer white crownbeard because frostweed also refers to five different species of the Crocanthemum genus, as well as several introduced species of the Helianthemum genus.
