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.

Fagus sylvatica var. purpurea - Purple Beech

Purple Beech has been found at Station Wood (SX15G, 1992, S.J.Ford), Middlewood (SX27S, 1997, M.Atkinson), Lower Treluswell (SW73S, 1991, C.N.French), Lewannick (SX28Q, 1997, M.Atkinson) and Canworthy Farm (SX29G, 1997, M.Atkinson). It is likely that the majority, if not all, of the trees were originally planted.
