The plant is a prolific spreader in wetland environments. Once the native plants are overtaken it can also have effects on the .wildlife. The purple flowers are m bloom right now. It is commonly confused with three other plants, fireweed, lesser purple-fringed orchid, and blazing star. Once you can identify the square stem, flowing structure, and habitat, it should be easier to identify. It is listed as a prol~ibited noxious weed in the state of Minnesota. Therefore it is illegal to possess, plant, transport, or sell purple loosestrife, Purple loosestrife is in thg Lythraceae family and can be found ih wetlands, ditches, shorelines, and riverbanks. This invasive thrives in wet area, but is known to grow in dridr areas. Since this plant can grow i almost all conditions it is a great thre~ to any natural ecosystem. Purpl loosestrife usually grows around thre to seven feet tall. It can have up to 5, erect branching square stems arisin from a single rootstock. The leave are simple and attached directly to th stem. Leaves are usually opposite bqt sometimes alternate or whorled with smooth margrus. The flowers ar~ arranged in a spike. Each flower Ms five to seven rose-purple or pin~ petals blooming from July tb September. Purple loosestrife reproduces seed and rhizomes. A single with a spike of flowers can produc 100,000 to 300,000 seeds a year. 8 AM-2 PM " 8:3OAM 8:30 AM 10-11:30 AM 10:00 AM 10:30 AM 11 AM-1 PM 11 AM-1 PM 12:00 noon 2:00 PM after parade After Parade i 3:30 PM 4:30 PM 5:00 PM means that a mature plant With up to 50 stems can produce two million "rMemorials for ,,-Rice Hospice : :.-v , The following memorials 'and I 'i '[* eradication. For more information donations were received by Rice about purple loosestrife and other Hospice-Ortonville/Graceville ~ seeds each year. Its germination rate is around 60 to 70 percent and seeds remain viable for 20 years This invas~ve plant poses a great threat to our natural ecosystems. The seeds are capsules that burst dispersing the seeds around the parent plant but water, boats, animals, and humans aid m spreading the seeds. The rhizomes (roots) of purple loosestrife spread rapidly and aid increasing infestations. Control methods for purple loosestrife include cultural, chemical and biological. Hand pulling or digging up the plant will work but it is important that the whole root system is removed to prevent re-sprouting. The removed plant then needs to be disposed of by burning the plant. i: Mowing is not recommended due to re-sprouting by rhizomes. To reduce : seed production, clip the budding stem and properly dispose of it. Chemical control entails spot spraying with glyphosate or tryclopyr (Garlon 3A): - Since purple loosestrife is usually near water, formulations of the chemicals for use near water are required. Minnesota requires posting "loosestrife control site" signs along public waterways or wetlands to notify the public of chemical use in the area. Biolo.gical control includes two natural insect enemies of loosestrife from Europe the Galerucella beetles. These have been proven most effective in control of large infestations. However. early detection and prevention is crucial in limiting the impact of an infestation The Cooperative Weed Management Area (CWMA) program is targeting this invasive week for 5K - 10K Run and 1 Mile Walk- at the Big Stone National Wildlife Refuge 3D Archery Shoot - Continuous line, at Minn-Kota Archery Range, Ortonville Start 5K and 10K Run and 1 Mile Walk Races at Big Stone National Wildlife Refuge Church Services at Big Stone County Museum's Church - All faith worship service.
