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 grass is occasionally grown in landscaping; it can self-seed and escape into the wild, and can also spread vegetatively through horizontal stems rooting at nodes. It can survive in sandy areas along railroad tracks. As a result it has established at several sites east and north of its native range. We mark these all expanded, although easternmost populations could probably be marked introduced as well due to their isolation.
