Discussion

Adlumia fungosa is apparently naturalized in southwestern British Columbia. It was reported to be "freely escaping" from a garden in Alberta (H. Groh 1949), and it is a casual, but usually not persisting, escape elsewhere.

Selected References

None.

Lower Taxa

None.

"thin" is not a number.
