The Purple Loosestrife took over a lot of the wild life. Which left less room for animals to live. Reason for Success Issues for the future Yes, there is something to control the growth or spread of the Loosestrife. The are chemicals called Herbicide. Which they put on the stems on the flower and it stops the growth. A good thing is that it stops the spread and growth. A bad thing is that the chemicals they use could affect the enviroment around it. The Purple Loosestrife is successful because it is used for medical reasons.
