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.

Delairea odorata - German-ivy

German-ivy is best seen on the Isles of Scilly where it is well established and locally abundant. On the mainland it has been recorded in the churchyard at Gulval, near Penzance (SW43V, 1973, B.M.Sturdy, still there in 1990). In 1988 it was found near Ruan Lanihorne growing over a roadside hedgewall (SW84W, R.E.Lees).
