Features of generative and vegetative reproduction of 6 rare species of Iridaceae listed in the Red Data Book of the Republic of Uzbekistan (2009) (Crocus alatavicus, Gladiolus italicus, Juno hippolyti, J. orchioides, J. svetlanae and J. magnifica) were studied under conditions of introduction in the Tashkent Botanical garden. It was shown that species with a wide range (Crocus alatavicus, Gladiolus italicus, Juno orchioides) were the most labile, less labile - species with a narrow range (Juno magnifica) and endemics of Uzbekistan (J. hippolyti and J. svetlanae).
