 In order to search for new sourcesof medicinal raw materials, an introductory and biochemical study of theaboveground mass of natural plant species is conducted in the NikitskyBotanical Garden. The article presents the results of a primary introductorystudy of Prunella grandiflora (L.) Jack., P. laciniata (L.) L. and P. vulgarisL. – valuable sources of phenolic compounds – in the Southern coast of the Crimea. High plant survival rate and seed germinationtestify the prospects of introduction of these species and its furtherindustrial cultivation in this region.

Phenolic compounds of the studiedspecies are represented by hydroxycinnamic acids (chlorogenic, coffee androsemary acids) and flavonols (rutin and quercetin-3-O-glucoside). The ratio ofthese compounds to the flowering phase is characterized by a significantpredominance of the first one (45.83 mg/g in comparison with 19.6 mg/g), whilein the fruiting phase they are almost in equal amounts – 11.41 and 11.20 mg/g.The dominant component of phenolic compounds is rosmarinic acid, theconcentration of which is determined within 91.6–92.3% of the amount ofhydroxycinnamic acids. The highest concentration of rosmarinic acid wasobserved at Prunella vulgaris (41.98 mg/g) in the mass flowering phase. To thephase of seed ripening in subtropical climate conditions a decrease in theamount of rosmarinic acid in the above-ground mass of this species is observedalmost at 5 times.

The content of phenolic compounds(and in particular rosmarinic acid) in the aboveground mass of Prunellagrandiflora and P. vulgaris species growing in natural phytocenoses of theCrimea and the Caucasus makes it possible to talk about their value as sourcesof biologically active substances.
