Geographic Range [top]

Range Description: The species may be divided into two varieties, vars. californica and hindsii, both endemic to California. Walnut forest is a much fragmented and declining habitat. There are just two or three stands remaining of var. hindsii, although it is widely naturalised in parts of California and was formerly cultivated as a rootstock for J. regia, with which it readily hybridizes.
