The study of floristic biodiversity of the regions of Ukraine is always relevant and valuable. The species composition of vegetation worries people for many reasons. Plant resources are an integral part of the country's national wealth. Widespread use of plants in various sectors of the economy requires careful study of the vegetation potential of each region. Particular attention is drawn to the species that people use for more than one purpose. Such plants include members of the family Boraginaceae. Plants of this family are widely used as ornamental and medicinal plants. One such plant is Nonea pulla L. valuable is a perennial herbaceous plant up to 40 cm tall.
