The morphology and vascular anatomy of the flower Ledebouria socialis (Bak.) Jessop. (Hyacinthoideae) were studied. It is established that the gynoecium has following structural zones: synascidiate, hemisynascidiate, hemisymplicate and asymplicate. The perianth is supplied by branches of central vascular bundles, and all stamens by branches of bundles of all tepals. The structure of the carpel vascular system can be reduced to the type with a dorsal bundle and two ventral bundles. The septal nectary has three fissures between walls of the ovary.
