Lygodesmia grandiflora is recognized mainly by its relatively large corollas. Some variants were segregated as distinct species by A. S. Tomb; because of intermediates, putative hybrids, and associated identification problems, it is probably best to recognize these as varieties pending further investigation (A. Cronquist 1994; S. L. Welsh et al. 2003).

Variety grandiflora is recognized by its relatively large, pink corollas and 8–12 phyllaries. The size of the plants varies and stems are often somewhat woody near the bases. This variety appears to intergrade with var. arizonica and var. dianthopsis (S. L. Welsh et al. 2003).
