This association contains herbaceous vegetation dominated by Petasites kablikianus, occurring on river banks, gravel deposits and along the edges of forest roads. Soils contain a high proportion of gravel and sand and are rich in nutrients. This vegetation type is typical of the Carpathians; in the Czech Republic it occurs in the Moravskoslezské Beskydy and Krkonoše Mountains.
