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.

Geranium rotundifolium - Round-leaved Crane's-bill

Round-leaved Crane' s-bill is a plant of road verges, pavements, Cornish Hedges, the base of mortared walls and waste ground. It is most frequent around the Tamar estuary (SX45), but is also fairly common around the Camborne-Redruth conurbation, such as along the New Portreath road (SW64S).
