Ecology

Phenology

Flowering at the end of May till mid-June, fruiting in June and July.

Habitat

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.

Distribution

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.
