Can be long persistent from cultivation as at Fort Hunter Liggett (Monterey Co.) where it is found about old homesteads without any indication of spontaneity. Other 'populations' may originate via garden trash, but many locations are obviously spontaneous. Observed in coastal meadows and on roadsides, where occasional to common in Monterey Co. but not yet vouchered. Also observed in locations other than the records above in Sonoma, Mendocino and Humboldt Cos.
