Giant Plumose and Short Plumose Anemone
British Columbia has two varieties of Plumose Anemone. The striking Giant Plumose, Metridium farcimen, can grow up to one meter tall and is a spectacular sight under water when it forms isolated clumps, or large masses on a wall. The smaller Short Plumose, Metridium senile, often carpets shallow rock ledges and dock pilings. These anemone come in two main colour forms, white and orange.
