Although purple loosestrife can grow in the water and on the shorelines, these plants mostly grow on land.  These are all very invasive species.  You should be aware of what they look like and take measures to limit their spread.  Much more information can be found on the Michigan DNR website:,5664,7-324-68002—,00.html
