Unfortunately, the P. hirtus populations at the TNC popcornswale preserve have faltered due to other competitive vegetation and the change in hydrology. The Service is funding the control of shrubs and nonnative invasive plants at the Orenco Ponds and Southside Swale this coming season.
Recovery Plan for the Rough Popcornflower (Plagiobothrys hirtus) F 1 Oregon Fish and Wildlife Office (503) 231-6179 rough popcornflower Plagiobothrys hirtus 2 1.1.5.3.3 Implement control measures Ongoing Current FY 2005 Other Oregon Department of Agriculture, U.S. Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, The Nature Conservancy Management: General Internal Field Assistance TNC and DSWCD continue to manage Plagiobothrys hirtus reserves adaptively, based on results of non-native and native plant control techniques. The City of Sutherlin, USFWS, ODA, and the Native Plant Society of Oregon entered into a Conservatoin Agreement to manage the plant at the city's Festival Grounds. So far attempts to control reed canarygrass at the site are not going well. We may contract help in the near future.

The Service shares the resposibility for this action with Roseburg BLM, DSWCD, ODOT, TNC, and City of Sutherlin. From FY 2018 - 2021, the Service will assist in the restoration of the TNC Popcornswale and Douglas Soil and Water's Southside Slough rough popcornflower introduction sites.

Four of these populations appear to be extremely vigorous, one is stable or slightly increasing and the other two are dwindling or uncertain. A new population was discovered at Ford's Pond in Sutherlin in 2017. Although the population appeared to expand in 2018, it completely dried out before seed was mature.

A sample of their germplasm is in storage. No new efforts have been completed since 5-year review.
Recovery Plan for the Rough Popcornflower (Plagiobothrys hirtus) F 1 Oregon Fish and Wildlife Office (503) 231-6179 rough popcornflower Plagiobothrys hirtus 2 2.2 Collect and bank seeds Ongoing Not Current Prior to FY 1995 Other Berry Botanic Garden, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Research: Propagation Internal Field Assistance Since 1987, approximately 17,600 seeds have been collected from 7 differect populations and accessed into Berry Botanic Garden. The plant needs to be sponsored so that the BBG can continue to maintain their collection. Oregon State University maintains a modest amount of seed at their nursery that will be used for future introduction projects. No seeds were collected in FY 2008 or 2009. More recently seed collection was accomplished in 2011 to augment existing populations in the Sutherlin Creek Recovery Area.

Recovery Plan for the Rough Popcornflower (Plagiobothrys hirtus) F 1 Oregon Fish and Wildlife Office (503) 231-6179 rough popcornflower Plagiobothrys hirtus 3 4 Provide outreach services for reserve owners and the general public Ongoing Current FY 2006 U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Oregon Department of Agriculture, Oregon Division of State Lands, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, The Nature Conservancy, Douglas County Soil and Water Conservation District Other: Information and Education Species Expert, Internal Technical Assistance In 2010 the Service provided funding for a natural wood fence and interpretive signs placed around a Plagiobothrys hirtus population at a Sutherlin park. The fence and an interpretive sign was constructed in summer 2010 and has improved the aesthetic value of the population for public display. In 2012 and 2013, the Service has worked with two private land owners interested in reserving their properties and discussed possibilities for rough popcornlfower introductin.
