Coastal mountains and hills around the NE section of the Black Sea.
No uses are recorded but it is probably being used locally.
Global status and rationale
The extent of occurrence (EOO) of this variety has not been calculated due to a lack of herbarium specimens available for mapping. Although it extends in scattered localities along the coast for several hundred kilometers its area of occupancy (AOO) is small, certainly not above 1,000 km². Continuing decline is inferred mainly from development along the Crimean coast which has removed suitable habitat.
Development along the coast of the Black Sea, especially near Yalta, has and continues to destroy suitable habitat. This may be the case also in locations further east.
This taxon is present in a few protected areas but most localities are unprotected.
