Hydrilla

Hydrilla

Hydrilla verticillata

Family Name:

Hydrocharitaceae   

Class: A
Other Names: water-thyme, Florida-elodea
 Why is it a noxious weed? Hydrilla forms dense canopies that often shade out native vegetation. Extensive single species stands provide poor habitat for fish and other wildlife. Once established, it destroys freshwater recreational opportunities by forming extensive surface mats.
