The species is on the Exotic Weed Act list. Additionally, and this is crucial, ALL their cultivars are included, no matter who or what says the cultivars are sterile. Any cultivar of these plants CANNOT be legally sold or planted in Illinois without a permit from IDNR. This includes all the so-called sterile purple loosestrife cultivars as well as the Fine-Line® buckthorns.
