About 70 species widely distributed throughout the Northern Hemisphere, of which 29 occur in the FSU, mostly Asian (southern Siberia and the Far East) but also in the Caucasus. Their delicate and graceful appearance makes them truly desirable garden plants. However, some species are short-lived and decline after 5 or 6 years.

Some species from Central Asia and Siberia merit also horticultural attention. A. atrovinosa Pop. ex Gamajun., with vine-red flowers, Tien Shan and China (Dzhungaria); and three species with blue numerous flowers A. karatavica Mikeschin, Tien Shan (Karatau); A. turczaninovii R. Kam. et Gubanov, southern and eastern Siberia; A. vitalii Gamajun., Central Asia (Dzhungarskiy Alatau), can be used in the rock garden and in the wild garden in semi-shaded places. Z 5 (4). All are new.
