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.

Geranium x magnificum - Purple Crane's-bill

A hybrid between G. ibericum and G. platypetalum , this is an infrequent but persistent garden escape found on road verges, waste ground, including mine waste, and on the edge of the heath on Hingston Down, near St. Ann's Chapel (SX47A, 1980s, L.J.Margetts). Other sites include Connor Downs (SW63E, 1991, C.N.French), on a mine shaft in the Tolskithy valley (SW64W, 1996, C.N.French), near Domellick (SW95P, 1996, I.J.Bennallick), Trebyan (SX06R, 1990, R.J.Murphy), Bridgerule (SS20R, 1994, T.Atkinson), Tredinnick, Duloe (SX25I, 1997, M.Atkinson) and north of Clapper Bridge (SX36T, 1986, A.E.C.Aston).
