Lyngbye’s Sedge and Herbaceous Vegetation

Estuary Marsh [Red-Listed]

This sedge dominated association grows where there are fluctuations in brackish water on tidal flats and channel margins. Lyngbye’s sedge often occurs in dense pure stands, although some sites have Pacific silverweed, seacoast bulrush, and Douglas’ aster. Examples are rare on Salt Spring only occuring at the head of Fulford Creek and intermittently along Booth Canal click this link now.
