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.

Sorbus devoniensis - Broad-leaved Whitebeam

Broad-leaved Whitebeam is a Nationally Scarce tree which is endemic to Britain. In Cornwall it has been found only at two nearby sites very close to the border with Devon; at Tetcott (SX39I, 1993, D.C.G.Cann) and north of Beardon (SX39B, 1988, R.J.Murphy). It was first refound at Beardon in 1986 by R.W.David and L.J.Margetts.
