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 sanguineum - Bloody Crane's-bill

Bloody Crane' s-bill is probably native only on the Lizard and along the north coast between Porthtowan and Chapel Porth (SW64Z). Elsewhere it is an introduction, often as a garden escape. Recent records include Castle Gate (SW43X, 1996, C.N.French), Gwithian Towans (SW54V. 1996, E.C.M.Haes), Kynance Cove (SW61W, 1993, P.E.Tompsett), near Beagles Point (SW71T, 1990, N.H.Davies), a cliff-top near Trewillis (SW71Y, 1992, C.N.French), near Wheal Basset (SW74D, 1991, T.J.Geater), near Silverwell (SW74N, 1991, C.N.French), Reen Sands, Perranporth (SW75M, 1997, B.N.Boothby), near Deep Tye Farm (SW96K, 1996, I.J.Bennallick), and Crooklets (SS20D, 1994, M.Atkinson).
