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.

Artemisia absinthium - Wormwood

Wormwood is rare in Cornwall and mainly restricted to the north coast, from Newquay (SW86) to Marsland (SS21), but is frequent on the Isles of Scilly. Found in small numbers, on, or beside, hedges, it can be persistent at a particular site for many years, as at Porthcothan (SW87R) and West Pentire (SW76Q).
