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.

Hypericum hircinum subsp. majus - Stinking Tutsan

Stinking Tutsan is a rare garden escape which has been found on waste ground, Council tips, in hedges and alongside railway tracks. It has long been known from around Swanpool (SW83A) and can sometimes be seen in the Swanvale Nature Reserve or in the Swanpool cemetery (SW83A, 1994, D.T.Holyoak). It also occurs on St. Mary's, Isles of Scilly (SV91F, 1993, A.Underhill).
