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.

Lamium maculatum - Spotted Dead-nettle

Spotted Dead-nettle is a very rare garden escape that is usually found close to habitation. It is more frequent in south east Cornwall but does not persist at any one site for long. It has been seen at such places as a hedge at Pendeen (SW33X, 1992, C.N.French), a road verge at Crowan (SW63M, 1993, C.N.French), Downderry (SX35B, 1990, R.W.Gould), a road verge at Tremollet Downs (SX37H, 1993, M.Atkinson), and a car park at Penlee Point (SX44J, 1998, I.J.Bennallick).
