Seems like they either don't know yet, or aren't saying. There's quite some effort going into stopping new things getting in there, but not much into seeing what IS there apart from algae, There are nematodes and other creepies in the soil - and there IS soil which means there will be plant life of sorts - but it's not yet investigated. The islands are 95% glaciated, cloud covered most of the year and highly inaccessible as well as icebound in the winter. There have been few landings on them (they are uninhabited - I wonder why?) - one report being 20 in total. I could see lichens and mosses being about your lot. I quote from http://www.sub-antarctic.org/docs/IslandsInfoBooklet.pdf 'Vegetation is very sparse.'
