Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral bluespiral On May 18, 2006, bluespiral from (Zone 7a) wrote:

USDA says this plant is an "introduced", "noxious", "weed" in Arkansas and Arizona ("prohibited") It describes I. amnicola as perennial with no zone given, so perhaps one can infer that this plant is perennial to the US southern states mentioned.

The International Plant Names Index gives I. amnicola's distribution as Paraguay, so perhaps that was where this plant came from.


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:

Westmoreland, Tennessee
