Macoun’s Meadow-foam and Montia

Vernal Pools & Seeps [Red-Listed]

Coastal bluff and outcrop seepages form rare openings within our coastal Douglas-fir forests. When they are occupied by Macoun’s meadow-foam, montia, tiny mousetail, and various native clovers, they become even more significant. Found on Salt Spring Island only at Ruckle Provincial Park.
