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.

Cotoneaster simonsii - Himalayan Cotoneaster

Himalayan Cotoneaster is one of the more common Cotoneasters seen growing in the wild. It has been found self-sown in many waste places, especially disused mine sites, quarries, and, in the case of Phillack, on the edge of the sand dunes. It is sometimes found growing on walls.
