This retention pond in Jacksonville NC is infested with alligatorweed. Alligatorweed which grows quickly is very invasive and will choke out other vegetation. This pond has been taken over and the alligatorweed has obstructed flow around the outlet structure. While it’s blooms are aesthetically beautiful and fragrant, it is very invasive and needs to be removed. It typically grows in shallow water but once a floating “mat” is formed, water depth doesn’t matter.
