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 micrantha - Small-flowered Sweet-briar

An uncommon but possibly under-recorded rose which can be found growing on hedges in places such as St. Minver (SW97T, 1997, M.Atkinson), Phillack Towans (SW53U, 1994, D.T.Holyoak), Gunnislake (SX47F, 1988, A.E.C.Aston) and along the northern fringe of the Lizard Peninsula. It also occurs on the Isles of Scilly.
