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).
+
Variety arizonica is identified by its relatively short size (rarely over 20 cm), branched, leafy stems, and reduced or absent phyllary apical appendages.
