Where is Broom Crowberry (Corema conradii)
located in the wild?
Corema is a plant of coastal plains. It grows on sandy soil, open sand, or siliceous rocky plateaus, ledges, and summits (Fernald 1921, Dunwiddie 1990, Dunwiddie et al. 1997). On open hilltops, it is found in pitch pine (Pinus rigida) stands, forming a springy carpet in pine barrens (Sorrie 1987). All of these habitats have relatively open light conditions, a requirement for the plant. This may be due to disturbance, often in the form of infrequent fire (Sorrie 1987).
This species has a disjunct distribution (meaning a few, widely separated populations) occurring on sandy or rocky coasts from Nova Scotia to Massachusetts, in the New Jersey pine barrens, and in the
