These data represent the first reference genome for the invasive Phragmites australis ssp. australis (1.14 giga base pairs (Gbp)), as well as output from comparative genomic and transcriptomic analyses for invasive and native genotypes coexisting in the Great Lakes region of North America. Genome sequencing data used tillers and associated rhizome tissues collected from a single P. australis patch at the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge near Toledo, Ohio, USA. Transcriptome analyses were produced from samples collected from three invasive and three native genotype P. australis patches from four sites around the Great Lakes in Michigan and Ohio, USA.
