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.

Morus nigra - Black Mulberry

A 12ft high Black Mulberry was found as a possible garden escape growing outside a garden boundary in the Cot Valley, St. Just (SW33Q, 1988, J.Humphries). The only other records are from Lostwithiel (SX15, 1950, P.G.M.Rhodes) and Lepidoptera House, St. Austell (SX05M, J.L.Gregory). These may be planted specimens.
