Eichhornia crassipes is sold at aquarium stores and is sold in the Great Lakes. Water hyacinth is considered one of the most destructive plants in aquatic ecosystems in the United States and, as a result, is listed on both the federal noxious weed list and Florida’s list of prohibited aquatic plants. Biological Bioherbicides were developed for use in Florida’s E. crassipes infestation, including the pathogen Cercospora piaropi, the fungus Myrothecium roridum, and the water hyacinth-specific pathogen Alternaria eichhornia (Charudattan 2001). † Populations may not be currently present. Economic impact of biological control of water hyacinth in Southern Benin. Once introduced to a new region, the plant quickly establishes and spreads.

Its primary method of spread is through vegetative fragmentation (NSW DPI 2012). 2013; Soti and Volin 2010). Its showy, attractive lavender flowers precipitated this worldwide distribution. The occurrences in Arizona, Arkansas and Washington, shown in the map above left, are now believed to be “eradicated”. This species has reduced water availability in Lake Victoria Basin, which led to social conflicts over the lack of clean water (Mailu 2001). This rapid rate of urban growth is being driven by limited employment opportunities in rural areas, land States/provinces with nonindigenous occurrences, the earliest and latest observations in each state/province, and the tally and names of HUCs with observations†.
