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 plant is widely cultivated and has escaped and formed wild populations in several new areas. We marked the Oklahoma populations introduced because they are separated from the rest of the range by a large distance, but the New England populations expanded because they are close to this species' native range.
