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.

Malva arborea - Tree-mallow

Although formerly considered to be Nationally Scarce, Tree-mallow is quite a common plant around the coast of Cornwall, growing on Head cliffs and more rocky cliffs. It is also found on waste ground, along road verges and banks and on Cornish Hedges. Locations include Porthgwarra (SW32Q, 1998, C.N.French), Cadgwith (SW71H, 1998, C.N.French), Treworthen (SW75S, 1996, B.Grant), Turnaware Point (SW83J, 1998, M.Tempest), Harlyn Bay (SW87S, 1998, H.M.Meredith), Rosen Cliff (SW93I, 1998, I.J.Bennallick), Portholland (SW94K, 1997, R.E.Lees), Par Beach (SX05R, 1998, I.J.Bennallick), Efford Downs (SS20D, 1998, M.Atkinson) and on the Isles of Scilly as at Bryher (SV81S, 1995, R.J.Murphy).
