Amygdalus nana

Small, nice-flowering shrub, considered to be representative of the steppe and steppe-like vegetation. It is found at the Black Sea coast, North-Eastern Bulgaria, Danube Plain, Forebalkan, Western and Eastern Stara Planina Mts, Sofia Region, Znepole Region, the foothills of Vitosha Mt, Sredna Gora Mt and Tundzha Hilly Country. The flowering period is in April and May. In many places through its range it makes communities of its own or with other shrubs, a habitat which is considered to be endangered at European level.
