Variety canbyi occurs in the northern Bitterroot Range and through contiguous ranges almost to Wyoming. Variety canbyi and var. siifolia both have beaked galeas and are distinguishable to some degree by the presence or absence of calyx hairs, respectively. In some regions, such as in the northern Bitterroot Range, the calyx of var. canbyi is tomentose; in the Sawtooth Mountains, var. siifolia has glabrous calyces. In the Pioneer Mountains and the middle of the Bitterroot Range, where the ranges of the two varieties overlap, calyx hairiness varies among populations.
