New invasive plant emerges
excerpt from above:
Quote:
Those eye-catching, tall, magenta-colored perennials growing near ditches, along lakes and in wetlands may be pretty enough for a fall wild flower bouquet.

Don't even think about it, say plant experts....

I thought that was strange too. A lot of people are aware of it up there (it sticks out like a sore thumb), and have been for a few decades that I know of. Just someone at a small town paper, asleep at the wheel. Our small town daily paper here does a good job covering "green news" as they call it, especially on their website, but once in a while you can tell they were in a rush or just weren't paying attention.

yeah HUH???? NEW plant emerges? I don't think so! Purple Loosestrife has been all over New England for years. Well, at least they are raising awareness about invasive species.
