Exotic/invasive species - flowering rush flowering rush is an aquatic, exotic, tall, plant. i first reported it in july 2012 in webb's bay. it has definitely spread across the north shoreline of webb's bay since that time and become more abundant. it is currently growing both on the shoreline as well as in some deeper water (within the bay). more information on the flowering rush (butomus umbellatus) is available on the following website. https://nature.ca/rideau/b/b9b 3-e.html it is not a major problem at the moment, however over time it could spread further and crowd out native vegetation.
