It is reported that Phragmites is quickly spreading across Ontario shorelines and roads.
It grows 15 feet high, up to 3 feet per month.
It sends creepy 30-foot tentacles out to take over adjacent ground.
Growing so dense you can’t get through it, Phrag can shut down public beaches and parks, and even prevent you from using your shoreline or dock as you always have.
Phrag can seriously impact property values when it gets established in an area, because it is so disruptive and so hard and costly to eradicate it.
A relative of bamboo, Phrag is even starting to grow through roads and highways. So it has the potential to increase municipal tax bills.
Phrag has been spotted along Lake Huron and in areas just east of Georgian Bay.
