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.

Clematis vitalba - Traveller's-joy

Traveller's-joy is most frequent around the major Cornish estuaries such as the Fal (SW83 & SW84), Camel (SW97) and Tamar (SX45). It is also found on parts of the Lizard, the lowlands between Hayle and Penzance (SW53) and around the Camborne-Redruth conurbation (SW64). It is a plant of roadside hedges and verges and sand dune systems. It is regarded as a garden escape on the Isles of Scilly.
