Native or Not Present

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 native range of this species extends across much of Canada and Alaska; we have not yet built this part of its range map.


The range map, while correct for the continental U.S., is misleading because this species is widespread in the Arctic and we have not yet built the portion of the map in Canada.
