Oxypolis canbyii

Federal status: Endangered

Project lead: April Punsalam

Canby’s dropwort is a wetland plant native to the coastal plain. It is in the family Apiaceae. In South Carolina there are a number of populations growing in bays, but habitats are being destroyed and numbers have dropped. Collecting seed, ex situ propagation, and clearing woody vegetation are priorities.
