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.

Rosa x hibernica - Rosa pimpinellifolia x canina

An unusual rose was discovered growing at the edge of a wood at Calenick in 1982 (SW84G, K.L.Spurgin). It was considered to be almost certainly Rosa x hibernica (Margetts & Spurgin, 1991). This hybrid is also mapped for West Cornwall in Graham & Primavesi (1993). It is the hybrid between R. pimpinellifolia and R. canina .
