Beaver is proud to have been the first UK company to stop selling these plants. An invasive alien is a non-native plant which has the ability to take over our waterways, wild areas and generally be problematic if it escapes into the wild.
In conjunction with the Ornamental Aquatic Trade Association (OATA) Beaver is linked to the Be Plant Wise campaign.
This campaign advises not to dispose of unwanted plants into the wild, but to compost/destroy them securely.
This is a list of such plants:-
- Crassula helmsii – Australian stonecrop
- Hydrocotyle ranunculoides – floating pennywort
- Myriophyllum aquaticum – parrots feather
- Azolla caroliniana – water floating fern
Further details can be obtained from the Non-Native Species Secretariat or from OATA website.
