Discussion

The range of subsp. racemosa is much more limited than that of subsp. alba. C. L. Hitchcock et al. (1955–1969, Vol. 4) recognized these taxa as varieties and noted that var. racemosa occurs in the Cascades and northern Sierra Nevada and westward, whereas var. alba was mostly east of this region. However, L. W. Macior (1973) noted that Pedicularis racemosa had white flowers on Mt. Rainier, a mountain peak of the Cascade Range. In the Cascade Range sympatry is considerable as well as in the Wallowa Mountains of northeastern Oregon.
