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.

Potentilla sterilis - Barren Strawberry

Barren Strawberry is absent from parts of the north coast, the harsher parts of the granite uplands, the windswept western part of the Lizard Peninsula and the Isles of Scilly. Outside these areas it is common and tends to be found on mortared walls, Cornish Hedges and stone bridges. It can often be seen growing with Wild Strawberry.
