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.

Geranium robertianum - Herb-Robert

Herb-Robert is one of the most commonly recorded and widespread plants. It is found almost everywhere, except on the more isolated parts of Bodmin Moor and on very exposed areas of the Lizard heaths. Herb-Robert can be found in a variety of habitats including woodland, gardens, waste ground, quarries, road verges and Cornish Hedges. On the Isles of Scilly Herb-Robert was rediscovered, after a long absence, on St. Mary's in 1973 (L.A.Harvey) and subsequently found in Old Town churchyard (SV91A, 1995, C.N.French).
