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.

Scrophularia nodosa - Common Figwort

Common Figwort is found in drier situations than S. auriculata . It grows in open woods, road verges, waste places and rarely, on mine waste, such as at Wheal Busy (SW74M). In West Cornwall it is relatively frequent in West Penwith but rare elsewhere. In East Cornwall it is scarce on Bodmin Moor and it is also rare on the Isles of Scilly.
