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 maculatum - Imperforate St John's-wort

Imperforate St. John's-wort is almost unknown in West Cornwall, but is occasionally found in the east such as in the valley of the Fowey river. It is found in damp meadows, alongside railway tracks, in hedges and ditches, on road verges and beside streams. Probably all the H. maculatum records refer to ssp. obtusiusculum (Tourlet) Hayek.
