NatureServe Conservation Status
Rounded Global Status Rank: G3 - Vulnerable
Reasons: Polemonium vanbruntiae occurs in the northeastern United States, New Brunswick and possibly in Quebec, Canada. The major portion of the range of this species is in New York, where more populations are expected to be found. More than 100,000 stems are thought to occur. Threats to this species have to do with alteration of water regimes, ATV traffic and succession (this species requires some disturbance). Trends are considered stable over time.
Environmental Specificity: Moderate. Generalist or community with some key requirements scarce.
Comments: Open marshed, hillside seeps and wet meadows. This species doesn't appear to require calcareous seepage as it occurs on shale and if confirmed in Quebec it would be on serpentine.
