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.

Pittosporum tenuifolium - Kohuhu

Kohuhu has been widely planted in gardens and as a horticultural crop. It has been reported as naturalised in a few places on the Lizard, as well as elsewhere in West Cornwall along roads, in woods, churchyards and on walls and hedges. It has also been recorded from Tresco (SV81X, 1995, A.Underhill) and St. Mary's (SV91A, 1994, A.Underhill) on the Isles of Scilly.
