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.

Eupatorium cannabinum - Hemp-agrimony

Hemp-agrimony is common and widespread, especially in damp or wet habitats, such as marshes and roadside ditches. It grows in dune slacks, wet meadows, Cornish Hedges, on mine waste, cliff flushes, and on stream and river banks. It is, however, absent from much of Bodmin Moor and the Isles of Scilly.
