These plants were found in a damp, mixed forest on Sumas Mountain, Abbotsford, a year ago this week.
Western trillium, Trillium ovatum.
False Solomon's seal, Maianthemum racemosa.
Pacific waterleaf, Hydrophyllum tenuipes.
Pacific waterleaf is known from only 15 locations in British Columbia, on southern Vancouver Island and in the Abbotsford-Chilliwack area. Only one population is adequately protected. The main threat to the survival of this plant in the province is suburban sprawl. The patch above was found at 49 02 39.33 N, 122 14 07.85 W in a ravine threatened with infilling for road and subdivision construction.
