Eight Dollar Mountain is one of the most significant botanical sites in Oregon, representing a major area of species endemism in the state. 

Since the 1880s botanists have noted the area as being an important focal point for uncommon plants. Many of the serpentine endemics found in southwest Oregon and northwest California are abundant at Eight Dollar Mountain. Many large Darlingtonia fens are present lining the base of the conical shaped mountain and unusual plants on dry serpentine sites are also well represented.
