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 purpurea - Purple Ramping-fumitory

Purple Ramping-fumitory is both Nationally Scarce and endemic to Britain. It is persistent in a few places, as at Hayle (SW53N) and St. Ives (SW54A), and is mostly of casual occurrence elsewhere. In general it is found along road verges, in gardens and waste places and occasionally in cultivated ground and arable fields. It has been recorded on St. Mary's, Isles of Scilly (Knight, 1996).
