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.

Chamerion angustifolium - Rosebay Willowherb

Rosebay Willowherb is very common, growing on waste ground, in open areas in heathy scrub, along railway embankments and roadsides, as at Scorrier (SW74C). It is a pioneer species after clearance in conifer plantations and heathland fires. Occasionally it is an invader of horticultural fields. It is rare on the Isles of Scilly.
