Purple loosestrife is noted as arriving in BC in 1915. This perennial plant prefers wetlands, stream and river banks and shallow ponds where it can displace valuable habitat for flora and fauna. Dense infestations have been known to clog canals and ditches impeding water flow. It has been documented as producing up to three (3) million seeds per plant.
