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.

Semiarundinaria fastuosa - Narihira Bamboo

Narihira Bamboo has been recorded in two former estate gardens; Tehidy Woods (SW64L, 1940s, F.A.Turk) and Pencalenick School (SW84M, 1950, M.R.Williams). It was also found in 1983 at St. Catherine's Point, Fowey (SX15A, B.Ing). In each case the bamboo was probably planted.
