Dune Wildrye and Beach Pea

Beach [Red-Listed]

Although this is one of the rarest plant associations found on Salt Spring Island (there is less than four hundred square meters), it is also one of the easiest to observe as it occurs along the road edge at the head of Fulford Harbour. Anyone who has searched for a sandy beach on the island will soon realize there are only a couple other small and scattered sites with suitable habitat.
