The general area is a high-quality wet/wet-mesic/mesic forest complex at the toe of the St. Croix Valley slope. Occurs in distinct, mucky, seepage area dominated by Carex bromoides under a canopy of tall slender black ash, with yellow birch and sugar maple. Shrubs very sparse. Herbaceous cover 80-90% dom by C. bromoides, w/ Laportea canadensis, Athyrium filix-femina, Impatiens capensis, C. gracillima, Mitella diphylla, Dryopteris carthusiana, Gymnocarpium dryopteris. Poa alsodes is uncommon. Similar to other C. bromoides areas at this site but this is a little muckier. Symplocarpus is uncommon in general in seepage zone below valley slope. Searched for Poa paludigena along seepage creeklets but found none; found it on muck here among Carex bromoides in two separate patches, each 0.5 x 0.5m in size (4 tufts, 6 tufts respectively).
