Stachys plumosa was observed for the first time in Albania near a spring in a serpentine area near the village Zagradeci at Mikri Prespa. It occurs at altitudes between 880 and 1350 m, in dry pastures and rocky places in association with Alkanna pindicola , Buxus sempervirens , Comandra umbellata subsp. elegans , Convolvulus elegantissimus , Dianthus haematocalyx subsp. pindicola , Erodium guicciardii , Fraxinus ornus , Haplophyllum boissieranum , Helichrysum plicatum , Hyssopus officinalis and Ostrya carpinifolia . It was also recently recorded in clearings of Carpinus and Buxus on the limestone slopes of Ivani Mt and near Kapshtica village, close to the border with Greece. ― New for Albania.
Stachys plumosa has not yet been reported from Albanian territory, although known from the F.Y.R. Macedonia and Greek parts of the PIP. It is a Balkan endemic with a wide distribution on mainland Greece (northern Greece to S Pindos), W Bulgaria and F.Y.R. Macedonia.
