The territory of the ecological reserve is suitable for the growth of so-called serpentinicolous species. Since barely 1% of the earth's surface offers suitable habitat for this type of plant, they are often threatened or vulnerable.
This is particularly the case with the bushy aspidote (Aspidotis densa) which is found in only six locations in North America. The largest known population of aspidote is located in the Serpentine-de-Coleraine ecological reserve. Other vulnerable species are also found on the territory, in particular the Maidenhair fern of the Green Mountains (Adiantum viridimontanum), the ebony doradilla (Asplenium platyneuron) and the simple goldenrod, variety of Rand (Solidago simplex, subsp. Randii, (var.) monticola).
