Re: Lythrum salicaria


Carolyn:
    It is also banned in Missouri.  I had purchased some from a nursery then
found this out. It is not even supposed to be for sale here.  I had it
planted in my garden and it is very invasive.  I did finally get rid of it
when I found out it was on the list of undesirables but it took a lot of
work to get it all killed.
