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.

Euphorbia amygdaloides - Wood Spurge

Wood Spurge is mostly a woodland plant that is common in the Tamar valley, as in Greenscoombe Woods (SX37W). Elsewhere it is rather local, growing in such places as Bishop's Wood, north of Truro (SW84J), and in the wood by Penponds Viaduct (SW63J). On the Lizard it grows in scrub and around rock outcrops along the cliffs, as at Poltesco (SW71H) and near Coverack (SW71Y).
