Niagara Issues - Invasive Species of Plants


Images of Phragmites and Purple Loosestrife occur in other pictures in this series. They establish themselves in pooling areas of most outflows, but not along the shoreline of the Niagara River itself. They enjoy stagnant or quiet water and become established in new habitat during the growing season at times perhaps when the soil is exposed which is normally underwater.
