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.

Chaerophyllum temulum - Rough Chervil

Much more common in East Cornwall than in the west, and absent from the Isles of Scilly, Rough Chervil grows along road verges and at the foot of Cornish Hedges, often in a certain amount of shade. It is scarce on Bodmin Moor but there are a few records for it in the St. Austell china clay area.
