Ecologists warn that the plant, known for its dense growth and high cold tolerance, threatens boating, float plane and commercial and sport fishing enterprises and could eventually affect fish species in water bodies across Alaska.

Illinois Adds Brazilian Elodea and Eurasian Watermilfoil to List of Banned Plants - One of the most high risk species on both lists is the aquatic superweed Hydrilla verticillata. Hydrilla has not yet arrived in Illinois, but has already been found in Indiana, Wisconsin, Kentucky, and Tennessee. At one time Hydrilla invasions in the northern U.S. were considered unlikely because of colder temperatures, but a new biotype has been invading and overwintering in several northern states.
