This map is based on our research. We have checked its accuracy to Level 3 ecoregions. Although this plant occurs somewhere in each of these regions, it may only occur in a small part of some or all of them.

This species is widely planted in landscaping, but it frequently escapes and thrives in disturbed ground along roadsides and railroads. We marked eastern populations expanded because they are contiguous with its native range, but western populations are separated by great distances where this species does not survive in the wild, so we marked those as introduced.
