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.

Muehlenbeckia complexa - Wireplant

Wireplant is naturalised in a few places along the coast, such as at Camel's Cove, Portloe (SW93J, 1995, R.J.Murphy) where it was first seen in 1983 by L.J.Margetts. It is common on the Isles of Scilly. Perhaps the easiest place to see it is along the western boundary hedge of the Rosewarne Experimental Station, just outside Camborne (SW64F, 1998, C.N.French).
