Cliff plants in Newfoundland

Roseroot (Rhodiola rosea) is a fleshy, cactus-like plant considered vulnerable in Nova Scotia. It is found growing in crevices in rocky cliffs and shorelines. On a recent trip to Twillingate, Newfoundland, it was plentiful growing out of cracks in the sea cliffs. I also saw Bird’s-eye Primrose (Primula laurentiana) along the cliffs in Twillingate. Bird’s-eye primrose is considered vulnerable in Nova Scotia.
