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.

Fuchsia magellanica - Fuchsia

i> Fuchsia magellanica has been much planted in the past as a hedgerow species. It still occurs in many places as a relic of planting and has become naturalised on waste ground at several localities. There are records from such places as Woon Gumpus Common (SW33W, 1991, C.N.French), Zennor (SW43P, 1991, D.Barrett), Rocky Valley (SX08U, 1981, B.E.M.Garrett) and North Hill (SX27T, 1990, J.S.Holmes).
