Purple Loosestrife Lythrum salicaria has become a problem in parts
of North America. It was introduced from Europe and now forms extensive
stands in marshes and lakeshores where it crowds out the native species. It
is a sturdy plant with simple stalkless leaves in pairs or threes and
slender spikes of pink-purple flowers that colour large areas of marsh.
Each plant is capable of producing millions of tiny seeds.
