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 columbinum - Long-stalked Crane's-bill

Long-stalked Crane' s-bill is a locally frequent plant of sheltered road banks and hedges, often amongst rank vegetation. It is particularly common in south east Cornwall and around the Camel estuary, such as along the Camel Trail between Padstow and Wadebridge (SW97). It may also be found in dune grassland and nearby hedges at Penhale Sands (SW75) and the Towans near Hayle (SW53 & SW54). It is absent from the Isles of Scilly.
