Flower/Fruit: Fl. Per.: July-August.
Type: Type: Described from Siberia.
Distribution: Distribution: C. & S. Russia, W. Siberia, Romania, Turkey, Iran, Caucasus, C. Asia, Afghanistan, N.W. Himalaya.
Comment/Acknowledgements: A polymorphic species with an unusual amount of variability in the plant and leaf size, shape, incision and the degree of pubescence. This variability has also been mentioned by several other authors such as Bobrov (l.c. 4243), Schönbeck-Temesy (l.c. 22) etc.

There is some difference of opinion as to petal colour. Knuth (l.c.) states it to be violet-purplish or violet-rose to sometimes white (Schönbeck-Temesy, l.c.), Bobrov, (l.c. 43-44) mentioned the colour as pink. In the Flora of Turkey (l.c. p. 467) and Flora Europea (l.c. p. 197) the colour mentioned is lilac or lilac-pink. Usually found along irrigation ditches or damp places from 2800-4800 m.
