Alopecurus carolinianus [Red-listed] Annual (or winter annual) tufted grass from fibrous roots; stems 10-30 (40) cm tall. Found in wet to moist vernal pools, roadsides and meadows in the lowland zone. Rare on South Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands.
Allium geyeri var. tenerum [Threatened/Red-listed] On the Southern Gulf Islands, this plants best defence is its choice of habitat. Steep cliffs and protected grassland pockets keep away most of the browsing deer that target the young flowering stems.
Piperia candida [Red-listed] Despite its broad range, Alaska to California, this rare orchid is still known from less than a dozen sites in British Columbia. On Salt Spring Island, it is so far only reported from one location where it occurs in a dry Douglas-fir and arbutus forest.
