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 used in gardens. Although it has been extirpated in parts of its range, garden escapes have led it to establish in new places elsehwere. We mark new populations expanded because they are relatively close to its native range.
