Magenta blooms and lush green foliage encircling an azure pond are a hauntingly beautiful harbinger of habitat loss. As purple loosestrife invades a wetland it not only pushes out beneficial plant species, it also reduces breeding, nesting and foraging habitat for endangered vertebrates such as the Blanding’s turtle, king rail and Blanchard’s cricket frog; a reminder that the effects of invasive plants extend far beyond the flora they out compete.
