Purple Rage
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has this story about a several county effort to document populations of the invasive wetland plant Purple Loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria) in Wisconsin. Researchers hope to take the survey statewide by next year; the last state survey for Purple Loosestrife was done back in 1987. Be sure to check out the link to a nice graphic showing the current mapped distribution. close-up of Purple Loosestrife flower
