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.

The exact native range of this species is not known. It expanded into North America beginning as early as the 1700's, but probably due to the influence of European colonization. It is generally agreed to be native to Mexico and some sources say it is native to Texas whereas others disagree; we have yet to build its range map in Mexico, but it is thought to be widely native throughout Mexico.
