About Purple Loosestrife

Purple Loosestrife (lythrum salicaria) spreads rapidly and replaces all native vegetation, forming mostly monocultures, reducing species diversity, and altering the structure of natural plant communities. Because its stiff stems collect silt and debris, Purple Loosestrife can change shallow water habitats into more terrestrial ones and results in the reduction in area of recreational wetlands and waterways as well as a reduction in their recreational and aesthetic value.
