In this study, ecological properties of the areas where some Crocus taxa (C. ancyrensis, C. sieheanus, C. chrysanthus, C. flavus subsp. flavus, and C. flavus subsp. dissectus) grow naturally was considered. The plants together with in situ soil samples were collected in their flowering periods and data on the distribution areas of the plants and some physical and chemical properties of soil samples were determined. In conclusion, the properties of the new distribution areas for the taxa have been presented
and it has been observed that taxa usually grow in light alkali, non-salted, clayey-loamy soils.
