From a botanical perspective, the plant belongs to the family Boraginaceae and is a hermaphrodite. although Trachystemon orientalis is endemic to southeastern Europe and western Asia, it gained a wide distribution in the UK.

A very effective groundcover as it grows in shaded woodland as well as full sun, and a range of soil conditions and moisture levels. Its invasive characteristics can be a concern in some regions. Used as wild vegetables in Turkey (food).
