Xeromesophyte. Photophilous. Grows on dry and sunny sites. Grows throughout
the forest and forest-steppe zones. Rarely forms extensive thickets; more
often grows in narrow bands along clearings or in small clumps on dry,
motley-grass, steppe meadows, in glades and clearings, in thin pinewoods, in
dry coniferous/small-leaved mixed forests, in oak groves, in steppe birch
patches, in meadow steppes, in fallow lands, along field edges and along
roadsides. In mountainous areas, the species occurs on foothills and in the
lower and middle mountain zones on stony slopes, though it rarely ascends
into sub-alpine meadows (up to 2300 m above sea level).
