Dry Coniferous Forest [Red-Listed]
An uncommon association that begins to form in open Douglas-fir forests, often in areas where there are Garry oaks nearby. Alaska oniongrass occurs in small patches in the openings along with long-stoloned sedge, occasional camas and a near continuous cover of electrified cat’s tail moss. Known on Salt Spring Island from scattered sites usually at low and middle elevations.
