Invasive Weed Management

The two noxious plants listed below have been found in the city. 

Myrtle Spurge

This fairly common plant was historically sold at nurseries as ground cover; however, due to its invasive nature, it is now identified by the state of Colorado as a noxious weed. Myrtle Spurge is required to be eradicated from all properties, both public and private.

Purple Loosestrife


This plant, which was also sold in nurseries as a decorative shrub, is now listed by the state of Colorado as a noxious weed. It is commonly seen in wetlands, where it chokes out native vegetation and clogs waterways.
