"Prohibited aquatic plant species are defined as any of the following:
African oxygen weed (Lagorosiphon major), Brazilian elodea (Elodea/Egeria densa), curly leaf pondweed(Potamogeton crispus), Eurasian watermilfoil, European frogbit, flowering rush, giant salvinia, hydrilla, Japanese knotweed, parrot's feather, purple loosestrife, water chestnut, yellow flag iris, giant hogweed and yellow floating heart."
