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.

Erodium maritimum - Sea Stork's-bill

Sea Stork' s-bill is locally frequent in coastal areas, growing on stony areas on cliffs, by coastal footpaths, occasionally on dunes, and on coastal hedges. It can also be found on pavements and road verges in such coastal towns as Polzeath (SW97J), Boscastle (SX09V), Perranporth (SW75M) and Porthleven (SW62H). It is very common on the Isles of Scilly.
