Notes The difference between var. clavatum and integerrimum is based on the presence of a whitish hair on the leaf tip in clavatum. The drawings in Douglas are unhelpful since they are identical making it hard to determine what is a whitish hair and what is a whitish leaf tip. The whitish point on this plant appeared to be a leaf tip rather than a long hair.
