Phragmites (Phragmites australis)

Comments: Although often considered attractive, this species is a very problematic invasive plant. It creates dense homogenous stands, eliminating diverse native marsh plants and offering little to wildlife. Photo taken in Worcester Co., Maryland (11/12/2005). Also known as Giant Reed.
