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.


BONAP refers to this species as being a synonym of Nuphar lutea ssp. pumila (Timm) E.O. Beal. However, POWO reports that name as a synonym of Nuphar pumila (Timm) DC. (which is not found in North America) and not of this species.

We were not able to resolve this inconsistency.
