Lotus in Detroit
(2007-10-15)
(wgvu) - A patch of flowering American lotus is
spreading rapidly on the Detroit River near Grosse Ile.
Some residents say they fear the patch will grow to interfere
with fishing and boating, while environmentalists say it's a sign
of the river's cleanliness.
The American lotus is threatened in Michigan, and there's a fine
as high as $500 for picking it.
The lotus bed was first spotted in 1999, and some homeowners say
it's grown to 10 acres.
