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.

Veronica montana - Wood Speedwell

A species of damp, well established woods with plenty of shade, Wood Speedwell can also be found in shaded hedgebanks. It is largely absent from the granite uplands of Cornwall, but has been recorded on Tresco, Isles of Scilly (SV81X, 1968, R.Lancaster), although this remains unconfirmed (Lousley, 1983).
