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.

Epilobium brunnescens - New Zealand Willowherb

New Zealand Willowherb is an introduced species that is common in the china clay district (SW95 & SX05) and frequent in the former mining areas. It may also be found along forestry rides, in gardens, flower pots, stony habitats and on walls. The first Cornish record was for a wall in Camborne (SW64K) where it still exists.
