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.

Fallopia japonica var. japonica x japonica var. compacta

Fallopia japonica var. japonica x F. japonica var. compacta was discovered in 1989 growing by the roadside at Buryas Bridge in West Penwith (SW42P, E.Cock). Unlike F. japonica var. compacta which is male-sterile, this hybrid was male fertile (Bailey & Conolly, 1991).
