This reduces the amount of native plant and animal biodiversity in the infested area. Purple loosestrife is a native of Europe and Asia that has spread throughout much of the U.S. and Canada. Because the flower is so attractive, purple loosestrife has been sold as an ornamental plant. Recently, many states have banned its sale.

– Purple loosestrife prefers wet soils or standing water. Loosestrife plants are typically found in poorly drained soils of road right-of-ways and trails, drainage ditches, culverts, lake shores, stream banks, and a variety of wetland habitats.

Distribution in Minnesota – Purple loosestrife is found throughout Minnesota. There are many kinds of vegetated areas that are not native plant communities. These include places where native species have largely been replaced by exotic or invasive species such as smooth brome grass, buckthorn, and purple loosestrife, and planted areas such as orchards, pine plantations, golf courses, and lawns.

Other areas not considered. “This is a book for everyone. Plant enthusiasts will enjoy the in-depth look at each plant and its uses, history buffs will appreciate the historical importance of each plant, and all of us can benefit from the authors’ insights into the importance of these and all plants—not only in Minnesota’s past but as all.

It quickly escaped cultivation and has been ravaging wetland habitats ever since. It is exceedingly aggressive and can overtake native plants very quickly. Purple loosestrife: Originally planted as an ornamental garden plant, purple loosestrife is the poster child of invasive plants. It has taught us how significantly a plant can transform the valued wetlands and waterways in Minnesota.
