Please try our next iteration of the Michigan Flora Online here. Beginning on February 1, 2023, michiganflora.net will point to this new site.

The new site offers several benefits over the existing website, including real coordinate mapping, giving a clearer view of the density of documentation as well as more precision about plant distributions and their link to landforms. We will also have the ability to update species pages more regularly, both in terms of new collections and as more existing Michigan specimens are georeferenced. In addition, we have a better photo display, and offer indented keys.

Pedicularis lanceolata Michx.
Common Name: SWAMP-BETONY
Coefficient of Conservatism: 8
Coefficient of Wetness: -3
Wetness Index: FACW
Physiognomy: Nt P-Forb

Pedicularis lanceolata Ann Arbor Natural Area Preservation

Much more of a wetland species than P. canadensis: borders of marshes, swamps, ponds, and lakes; river banks, thickets, and springy slopes; fens (even in Sphagnum), meadows, and wet prairies.

The corolla is pale yellow or cream, not as variable as in P. canadensis. Even more than in P. canadensis, the margins of the leaf lobes are edged with hard white ceramic-like deposits.
