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.

Pimpinella saxifraga - Burnet-saxifrage

Burnet-saxifrage is scattered but quite widespread in East Cornwall but largely restricted to stretches of coastline in the west, such as between St. Just (SW33) and St. Ives (SW54). It is a plant of Cornish Hedges, road verges and grassland and is most common in mid-Cornwall, where it also occurs along railways. On the Isles of Scilly it has been reported from St. Mary's.
