  • Habitat
    This species is endemic to the snowbed, grassland, and sagebrush/grass plant communities on the summit of Mount Harrison of the Albion Mountains, Cassia County, Idaho. The snowbed community is forb-dominated, with Solidago multiradiata, Aster foliaceus, and Cymopterus davisii being the most prominent members. Castilleja christii occurs at a low density in this community. The Graminoid community is dominated by Festuca idahoensis, Agropyron caninum, and Elymus trachycaulus. Artemisia tridentata ssp. vaseyana is absent. Castilleja christii occurs at its highest density in this community. The sagebrush community is dominated by Artemisia tridentata ssp. vaseyana and Festuca idahoensis, and is typically patterned in biscuit and swale topography. Castilleja christii density is inversely related to the density of the sagebrush. It generally only occurs in openings in the sagebrush and in the nearly shrubless swales between the biscuits.
