This native of of Trabzon and Rize districts of N. E. Turkey can be found growing on very steep slopes in an area of heavy rainfall. Soils in the area are made up of granite and are sandy with very little humus. Cultivation similar to that of 'L. monadelphum' and 'L. szovitsianum'. Seed is epigeal in germination in the spring but is more often than not, delayed.
