Spartium junceum L., the natural vegetation of Turkey flora, is one of the indicator plants of the Mediterranean climate. Especially in rural landscape, they offer aesthetic wives with floral beauties in dense stains.

In particular, the aim of the study were 1) to evaluate the aesthetic, medicinal and aromatic properties of Spartium junceum L. in rural and urban areas in landscape architecture 2) to investigate the effect of different medium on the germination of seeds of Spartium junceum L. As a result of the study, the success of the germination of seeds has been determined: peat 34%, peat + soil (7: 3) 35,33% and peat + sand (7: 3) 42,67%. In addition, root length, the number of root and plant length of germinated seedlings were measured. In the statistical analysis results, the best medium of root length and number of roots was determined as peat + sand (7: 3) medium. Peat + sand (7: 3) and peat + soil (7: 3) medium are in the same group in terms of plant height.
