V. dentatum is a more southerly occuring species. While some specimens found in Michigan are naturally occuring, most are escapes from cultivation.

This species may be confused with V. rafinesquianum, Downy Arrowwood. Both species have intermediate forms resembling one another. The Michigan genotype of V. dentatum is more glabrous than V. rafinesquianum. See for more information.
