The flora of western Estonia is very rich in species as a result of different meadow communities and numerous widespread calcipholous plants. The area is especially well-known for its affluence of orchid species.

Dewberry is the most characteristic wild berry of the locale. It can be found everywhere at field edges, roadsides and ditch banks. Calciphilous Orange lichen is often found on tree-trunks and rocks.
