Iran -Turan Plant Area (Steppes)

Steppes generally composed of xerophytic plant species and seen in wide areas reaching from Thrace to Iran and Iraq are the most common plant cover of Anatolia. Steppe plant cover, formed with the continuance of presence of one or more years long - lived plants in places where raining does not covering needs of a tree, can also develop in plentifully raining places.

Steppe plants, which are generally growing in lands without trees, are preventing Anatolian lands from the rage of raining and wind, meaning erosion. Steppes, which are extraordinarily rich in connection with plant variety can sometimes include more than hundred species of a single plant family. This variety is taking a great color and texture richness to the steppe. Especially in spring, greening as well as decorating Anatolian lands with yellow, red, blue, purple, pink colors for a few months, daisies, crocuses, violet, weasels, buttercups, kandamlaları, ballıbabalar, sığırkuyrukları, thistles, gevenler, çoban yastıkları, peygamberçiçekleri, hazeranlar and more, are turning geography in which they are present into a color carousal with their short - term lives. Steppe flowers are reflected to pieces of art with their rich colors and forms, and lots of motifs including kilims are woven.
