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.

Galeopsis bifida - Bifid Hemp-nettle

Bifid Hemp-nettle is seen in cultivated fields, along road verges, in scrub and on waste ground. Records for it are few. They include a cabbage field near Gillan (SW72W, 1993, D.T.Holyoak), Kit Hill near Callington (SX37V, 1987, L.J.Margetts), waste ground by the main road near Temple (SX17L, 1991, M.Atkinson), and disturbed ground near Tregoss (SW96Q, 1995, I.J.Bennallick). It is absent from the Isles of Scilly.
