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.

Berberis vulgaris - Barberry

Barberry is probably an introduced plant in Cornwall and is much less common than it used to be. It can be found at Penlee Point on the Rame Peninsula (SX44P, 1995, R.W.Gould), at Sheviock (SW35S, 1980s, S.C.Madge), in the Seaton valley (SX35C, 1995, R.W.Gould) and at Daymer Bay, near Rock (SW97I, 1995, R.Tofts).
