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.

Populus nigra cv. Italica - Lombardy-poplar

Lombardy Poplar has rarely been planted in Cornwall. It has recently been recognised at Crantock (SW76V, 1992, S.J.Ford) and at Trenance Farm, near Mullion (SW61U, 1980s, University of Bristol Lizard Project).
