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.

Fumaria capreolata subsp. babingtonii - White Ramping-fumitory

White Ramping-fumitory is an endemic. It is rare in Cornwall and yet seems to be less dependent on continued soil disturbance for its survival than many of the other fumitories. It grows along road margins, on walls, on hedges and from pavement cracks and can be very persistent at any particular site. It is very frequent on the Isles of Scilly.
