Purple Loosestrife – Let’s Help Out

An alert from the Town of Grafton Open Space Commission:

Purple Loosestrife is becoming more evident throughout the Town of Grafton.  If caught now, we could save ourselves from many headaches and labor in the coming years.  If you see this "pretty" invader, please dig it out, or at least cut the flowers off so it does not go to seed.  It can be controlled by leaf beetles, but right now, there aren't any or many around.

Thanks in advance for your help!
