Sweetflower Rockjasmine (Androsace chamaejasme Wulfen)

The taxon that POWO uses this name to refer to is restricted to the Old World; we suspect that this may reflect a split in which the North American populations have been put into their own species, referred to by a name with a newer type specimen, but we do not know what name POWO now uses to refer to this population, nor do they provide any tools to help us easily discern this. We have not yet examined this split so for now we retain the scheme used by USDA and BONAP which treats this species as native to North America.

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.

This species is also native to Canada, but we have yet to build this portion of its range map.
