Flora of Cornwall (1999)

The descriptive text, below the map, is from the Flora of Cornwall (1999), which was a Tetrad Atlas (the maps had 2km square dots or Tetrads). The map on this web page depicts the plant's distribution at the 1km square scale and shows the records made pre-2000 which were used in the 1999 Flora and those made since.

Scrophularia auriculata - Water Figwort

This is the most common figwort in Cornwall. It grows where wet conditions prevail; in fields, woods, ditches, alongside streams and rivers and beside many roads. Rather surprisingly it occurs less frequently in East Cornwall. Water Figwort was rediscovered on the Isles of Scilly growing in a garden in the main street of Hugh Town, St. Mary's (SV91A, 1995, C.N.French).
