DistributionThere are no specimens so-named at SERNEC, probably because botanists have not recognized infraspecific taxa or splits from H. helix. BONAP maps it for NC without designating any county. Weakley (2018) does likewise for the NC Piedmont.

Native of Europe; in N.A. scattered on East and West Coast states.
AbundanceThe website editors are giving this exotics species a rank of SR (State Reported) for now.
IdentificationDiffers from H. helix sensu stricto by characters of the hairs and leaves -- see Weakley's (2018) key.
Taxonomic CommentsA synonym is H. helix var. hibernica.
