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.

Hypericum montanum - Pale St John's-wort

Nationally Scarce, Pale St. John' s-wort is very rare in Cornwall and may survive now at only two places; alongside the railway track between Lelant and Carbis Bay (SW53J), where it has been known for many decades, and by the main railway line at Wearde, near Saltash (SX45D).
