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.

Epilobium hirsutum - Great Willowherb

Great Willowherb may be seen in such wet habitats as marshes, dune-slacks, roadside ditches, wet meadows and alongside streams and rivers. It can also be found where it is drier such as on mine burrows and stony or gravelly sites associated with waste ground. Sometimes it is found on walls and growing from tarmac and pavement cracks.
