Douglasia nivalis Lindl.[FNA8, HC, HC2]
snow Douglasii

Publication: Quart. J. Sci. Lit. Arts. [24]: 383. 1827.

Origin: Native

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: FNA8: "Previous treatments of Douglasia nivalis have recognized two varieties that differ in the degree of dentation on leaf margins. The most common is var. nivalis, with almost entire leaf blade margins, found in the Wenatchee Mountains and north to Chelan and Douglas counties. Variety dentata has more distinctly toothed leaves and is known only from the Wenatchee Mountains. Because there is a great deal of overlapping variation, particularly in the Wenatchee Mountains, those varieties are not given formal recognition here."
