Pedicularis friderici-augusti is another “royal” species, occurring in the Balkan Peninsula as well as NE & C Italy, being named after “Majestati Friderici Augusti, Saxonum Magnanimi Regis”. In Greece it is restricted to a few limestone mountains in the NE, growing on open rocky slopes generally at 1200–1800 m. It is conspicuous by its densely woolly inflorescence and purplish pink corollas.
