This association includes meadows of the montane belt in the Krkonoše Mountains, which also rarely occur in the lower part of the subalpine belt near the timberline. There is also one historical record from the Hrubý Jeseník Mountains. When compared to Geranio sylvatici-Trisetetum flavescentis, these meadows are more typical of higher altitudes and contain some alpine species, e.g. Campanula bohemica, Phleum rhaeticum and Potentilla aurea. Due to higher precipitation at higher altitudes, soils are leached and have low pH.
