Clean Equipment Protocol: Inspecting and Cleaning . This species of grass is introduced to North America and extremely invasive, greatly expanding its range since the early 20th century. It can grow along the shorelines of water bodies or in water several feet deep.

In South Carolina, it is restricted to the outer coastal plain where it occurs in fresh, brackish and salt . This initiative is aimed at reducing the current threats posed by this aggressive invasive plant to biodiversity and Species at Risk through . In these cases, the most effective treatment is to restore the flow of salt water. Both subspecies are perennial wetland grasses and both are present in Minnesota. The invasive subspecies can grow over feet high in dense stands. The stems and leaves are smooth and glabrous. The silky flower head is initially purplish in color but turns white and fluffy as . It is most often seen in large colonies.

It can also spread at metres or more per year by horizontal runners. The plant spreads horizontally by sending out underground rhizomes and over ground runners which can grow or more feet in a . But phragmites , also known as common ree is a large, coarse, perennial grass often found in wetlands. Although scattered clumps of phragmites provides cover for small mammals and birds, it usually forms large, . Recent and previously uncharacteristic increases in common reed abundance led to the study of its genetics. Compromises may be possible where invasive phragmites is allowed to remain in wetlands more vulnerable to sea-level rise.

Two varieties, one native and the other introduced from Europe, are found in. The non-native variety is an aggressive wetland invader that out-competes native plant species. It grows in dense single- species . This invasive variety of phragmites is becoming widespread throughout the.

Great Lakes and is displacing the native variety of the same species, as well as many other native plants.

Near-mono- typic stands of this phragmites have replaced high-quality, complex commu- nities of native plants over thousands of acres of . Extensive dense stands of these tall reeds crowd out more desirable plants. In other parts of North America an invasive genotype of P.
