A highly localized subalpine endemic with three known occurrences on three mountain peaks in the Wallowa Mountains of northeastern Oregon. Fewer than 10,000 plants are believed to occupy approximately 250 ha of habitat. The largest population is accessible by an aerial tram, making the plants vulnerable to unintentional trampling by an estimated 30,000 annual visitors. Trampling impacts appear to have caused population decline in the past and newer activities drawing more visitors are a concern for trampling. Conservation actions are now being implemented to minimize these impacts, and a monitoring system has been set up to confirm that these measures are adequately protecting the populations.
