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.

Campanula medium - Canterbury-bells

Canterbury-bells is a rare garden escape which from the few available records seems most often to occur in coastal habitats. Certainly, elsewhere in Britain it is often found on calcareous substrates. The most recent record is from Phillack Towans, Hayle, in 1987 (SW53U, D.J.Vickers).
