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.

Lamiastrum galeobdolon subsp. montanum - Yellow Archangel

True Yellow Archangel is very rare in Cornwall except in the extreme east, where it can grow in abundance on hedges and in woods. Records include; in a well-shaded lane near St. Ervan Church (SW87V, 1989, K.Bryson), a hedge by the lane to Trehingsta (SX37I, 1990, M.Atkinson), Innyham Wood (SX37T, 1989, M.Atkinson), roadside and hedges near Lawhitton (SX38L, 1990, M.Atkinson), roadside and wooded areas near Gunnislake Bridge (SX47G, 1988, R.J.Murphy) and in a wooded area near Calstock (SX46P, 1993, M.Atkinson). It is absent from the Isles of Scilly.
