Idaho in Action / Aquatic Invasive Species / Flowering Rush

flowering rush

Flowering rush is a submersed and emergent noxious weed that is expanding in Idaho. It forms dense growth and causes significant problems for boating and irrigation systems. Up until recently, there were no effective treatment methods for this species. Through cooperation with federal and local entities, it appears that several dry ground and in-water treatment methods can effectively control this plant.
