The only member of its family native to Western Canada, Western Spiderwort is a rare, federally protected species. The broken stems secrete a sticky substance, which forms cobweb-like strands when hardened, giving the plant its common name. High spring moisture benefits the annual population size. However, the main factors in population decline are habitat loss and sand dune stabilization.
