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.

Teucrium scorodonia - Wood Sage

Wood Sage is widespread and very common in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. It grows on Cornish Hedges, roadside banks, woodlands, dunes, and scrub, both inland and along coastal cliffs. On Bodmin Moor it is scarce but can be frequent in scrub on china clay waste.
