Pedicularis densiflora, known commonly as Indian warrior or warrior's plume, is a plant in the family Orobanchaceae.
Like others of its genus, it is a root parasitic plant, attaching to the roots of other plants to obtain nutrients and water. This species is a facultative parasite, or hemiparasite, in that it can live without attaching to another plant but will parasitize if presented with the opportunity. It often parasitizes plants of the heath family, such as manzanita.
