Canadian peat moss in California is likely to have come from British
Columbia while that in Florida is probably from eastern Canada. The peat
bog that produces "Sunshine Brand" peat moss is just south of Vancouver
and does contain bits of twigs and sticks. Just adjacent to the peat
mining operations is a huge natural bog which is the home of Drosera
rotundifolia, Drosera anglica and Drosera obovata. Other than some
aquatic utrics, Pinguicula vulgaris, Pinguicula macrocerus and the most
westernly colony of Sarracenia purpurea, these are the only CP's found
in Western Canada.
