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.

Sambucus nigra var. laciniata - Cut-leaved Elder

This shrub was recorded in 1950 from Pencalenick School (SW84M, S.M.Turk), a former garden estate, where it would have been planted. There is a record from near Pencalenick in Margetts & David (1981) which may be the same plant.
