Vegetation grossing mountains have long attracted the attention of botanists as one of the largest and most diverse composition of cells per coenotic steppes of Central European type. Botanico-geographical and geobotanical information about this area many rare and endangered plant species found in the writings of Wierdak (1926), Kozlowska (1931), Gajewski (1937), G.S. Kukovytsi (1970, 1976), J.R. Shelyag-Sosonko, J.P Didukh et al. (1981), I.I. Dmytrash, N.V Shumska (2011).

Investigated species is part of the formation Anthericeta ramosum, Brachypodieta pinnati, associations represented here Anthericum ramosum + Carex humilis, Brachypodium pinnatum + Carex humilis, Brachypodium pinnatum + Anthericum ramosum.Meadow-steppe communities which are confined populations of C. cirsioides, unique centers of growth not only this species, but other species listed in the Red Book of Ukraine such as, Adonis vernalis L., Astragalus onobrychis L., Crambe tataria Sebeók, Chamaecytisus blockianus (Pawt.) Klask., C. podolicus (Blocki) Klaskova, Trifolium rubens L., Thalictrum foetidum L., Stipa capillata L., S. majalis Klokov, S. pennata L., S. tirsa Steven, Iris hungarica Waldst. et Kit.The population of C. cirsioides numerous (967 individuals), covers an area of approximately1.5 hectares in the central part of the mountain. It includes juvenile – (9.7 %) individuals immaturnyh – (8,2 %), vegetative – (28,7 %), generative – (53,4 %), the population is tolerant and resistant, the number of vegetative and generative individuals is much greater than the number of other age groups.
