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.

Bergenia crassifolia - Elephant-ears

Elephant-ears has been found from a few scattered localities where it seems to have arisen as a garden throw-out. A particularly large patch can be seen on a slope on the outskirts of Boscastle (SX09V, 1993, C.N.French). It was reported from Tresco in 1993 (SV81X, A.Underhill).
