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 also native to Mexico, and in Canada, Ontario and New Brunswick. It has also expanded into British Columbia and Nova Scotia; we have yet to build these portions of its map.
