Abstract: In British Columbia, bearded owl-clover (Triphysaria versicolor ssp. versicolor) populations are found only on Vancouver Island near Victoria, where eight extant populations are known. Historic records suggest that this taxon has declined in this area since the early part of this century. Half of the populations occur on private land and half occur in city parks. The latter populations face more threats than those on private land, as there are no covenants in place to protect them; instances are known where rare plants have been destroyed by ‘improvements,’ such as the building of benches or trails. On private land, rare plant survival is at the discretion of the home owners. Introduced species, which are widely distributed in the Victoria area, also may pose a threat to the continued persistence of some populations. Private land stewardship programs and park convenants would prove useful in the conservation of T. versicolor ssp. versicolor, as well as the other rare plants that occur in these habitats. There
