This chapter describes the rich diversity of plant life in the Klamath Mountains, which contain the richest conifer diversity in the world and a number of rare or endemic plant species. The Klamaths contain isolated stands of foxtail pine and the only populations of weeping spruce. They are also home to the carnivorous California pitcher plant and to a number of distinctive species of monkeyflower (Mimulus). The Shasta snow-wreath (Neviusia cliftonii) is an ancient member of the rose family, which looks superficially like the widely distributed ninebark (Physocarpus capitatus). Its range has extended within the Klamath province, but it is still quite rare, apparently growing only in moist soils derived from limestone.
