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.

Arum italicum subsp. italicum - Italian Lords-and-ladies

Italian Lords-and-Ladies has become well naturalised and widespread along road verges, on Cornish Hedges, within woodland and on waste places. It is one of the few species able to grow within stands of Japanese Knotweed, mainly because it is winter-green. A group of plants with black spots on the leaves grows on a Cornish Hedge in Camborne (SW64K, 1998, C.N.French).
