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.

Thalictrum minus - Lesser Meadow-rue

Lesser Meadow-rue is frequent on the Lizard where it is considered to be native. As an introduction it has been recorded from over a dozen places in West Cornwall but only five in the east. On the Lizard it grows on the heaths and cliff-tops. Elsewhere it can be found on sand dunes, waste ground and on mine waste such as at Dolcoath, Camborne (SW64Q, 1996, C.N.French).
