Phragmites is becoming a widespread threat to wetlands across the Great Lakes basin. The perennial grass that can grow up to 15 feet tall creates dense stands that degrade wetlands and coastal areas by crowding out native plants and animals, blocking shoreline views, reducing access to water for swimming, hunting and fishing and creating fire hazards.
This booklet helps identify phragmites and outlines some of the common control methods homeowners and resource managers have access to.
