Control Purple Loosestrife
Manual/ Mechanical Control:
Physically cutting purple loosestrife and digging up the roots can be a somewhat successful way to manage this plant. Purple loosestrife plants can produce millions of seeds per year, and the seeds can germinate immediately or lay dormant for multiple years before sprouting.
Imox herbicide and a surfactant can partially control purple loosestrife. These products together are called our Cattail and Water Lily Control. Thoroughly wetting the plants will ensure the Imox is absorbed and moves through the plant to the root system as well.
