Abstract: The stomatal conductance, total leaf area, specific leaf area (SLA), relative water content (RWC), leaf dry matter content,
total chlorophyll (Chl), total carotenoid content were measured during drought treatment on Brunnera macrophylla and
Stachys macrantha. Drought treated plants showed great tolerance to levels of drought, avoiding desiccation by decreasing
stomatal conductance (B. macrophylla by 66.4%, and S. macrantha by 76,4%). SLA of Brunnera macrophylla significantly
decreased by 14.7%, the leaf area significantly decreased by 54.4% (Brunnera macrophylla) and by 72.3 (Stachys macrantha).
Drought stress decreased total chlorophyll content by 18.2% (Brunnera macrophylla) and by 20.6% (Stachys macrantha). The
carotene content was found to increase with drought treatment of Brunnera macrophylla (by 22.1%. The better adaptive
mechanisms on drought stress show B. macrophylla. S. macrantha is less drought resistant plant.
