    Ludwigia hexapetala is native to Latin America. It occurs naturally in swampier regions, such as those of lakes, ponds, and other areas of low intensity/stagnant water. It grows in mats of up to three feet tall, and in doing so, it crowds and/or shades out the other, more native species. The plant is known to inhabit the Southeast United States, Midwest United States, Pacific Coast, and parts of New England
