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.

Spiraea douglasii subsp. menziesii - Steeple-bush

Steeple-bush was found growing amongst brambles on Porkellis Moor in 1983 (SW63W, R.J.Murphy). Prior to that it was recorded from the estate garden at Pencalenick School, near Tresillian (SW84M, 1950, S.M.Turk).
