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.

Prunus cerasus - Dwarf Cherry

Dwarf Cherry is particularly frequent in mid-Cornwall. It is absent from Bodmin Moor and is very rare in North Cornwall and West Penwith. It usually grows in hedges and to a lesser extent in woodland. Sites include Reskadinnick, Camborne (SW64F, 1998, R.J.Murphy), near Hendra (SW95Z, 1997, I.J.Bennallick), Lower Bogee Common (SW96E, 1996, I.J.Bennallick), near Colbiggan (SX06B, 1997, I.J.Bennallick), Higher Pigsdon (SS20Z, 1997, M.Atkinson), Westcott Farm (SX29X, 1998, M.Atkinson), Trerulefoot (SX35J, 1990, R.W.Gould) and Hollygrove Wood (SX37N, 1989, R.J.Murphy).
