There are 34 endemic species of Nepeta in Iran, which one of them is Nepeta asterotricha. The present study evaluate different parameters including topography, climate factors, phenology, quantified properties of vegetation variation, physical and chemical properties of the soil at eight natural habitat of the plant in Yazd province. According to the study habitats, the results showed that the plant is distributed in regions with sandy-loam soil texture. The distribution of this genus was more than 2400m. The plant was grown with height of 28.4-41.87 Cm. The plant grows in March, flowering stage occurs in April. The biomass of plant was different from 29.33-61.94gr and the frequency was 16.67–37.67 percent in different habitats. According to results of functional and performance properties, Deh Bala and Taghi Abad habitats had prepared best conditions for this plant.

Keywords: Soil properties, Phenology, Vegetation Variation, N. astrotrica.
