The basic purpose of the submitted work was studying the taxonomical structure, the floristic and phytogeographical analysis of the Lenkoran-Lerik region geophytes, introduction of perspective species to the Central Botanical Garden and their rational uses. Plant collections were carried out within 2004 trough 2007 and during the two periods and as a result of researches for the first time the distribution of 163 species of geophytes, belonging to 30 families and 65 genera were found. Geophytes, meeting in region, are grouped as follows: 68 bulbous species, 61 tuber roots, 28 rhizomes and 6 corms. Among them 18 species are Caucasian and 17 are Azerbaijan endemic plants, with 14 geophyte species of the Mediterranean element, 29 species of Iranio-Turanian and 21 species of Hirkan elements. It has been found that 2 species are critically endangered (CR), 11 species are endangered (EN) and 20 species are vulnerable (VU), also actions for their protection and restoration are offered.
