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.

Aconitum x cammarum - Hybrid Monk's-hood

Recent records for Monk’s-hood have proved to be this hybrid. It has been found mostly on road verges and on waste ground such as at Pulla Cross (SW73P, 1993, C.N.French), near Roche Rock (SW95Z, 1997, I.J.Bennallick), near Boscastle (SX09V, 1996, R.J.Murphy) and at Merrymeeting (SX07W, 1987, K.Bryson).
