Floating and feathery, the Eurasian milfoil chokes
lakes with vegetation. Milfoil photo:
A submersed, rooted perennial, this invader lives in 0.5 to 3.5 meters
of water. Leaves are feathery, stems long enough to reach the surface. Plant
forms massive tangles in lakes in 46 U.S. states. Reduces water quality, harms
wildlife. A serious outbreak can fill a lake from shore to shore.
Feels like coarse sandpaper to a swimmer.
Can snare boats.
What does it take to win the war on weeds?
