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.

Viscum album - Mistletoe

Mistletoe is very rare in Cornwall. It has been recorded only on apple trees and the loss of sites may well be due to the grubbing up of old orchards. Recent records have been made at Cotehele House (SX46J, 1993, S.C.Madge) and Tregrill Vean (SX26W, 1994, J.Gendall).
