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.

Geranium pratense - Meadow Crane's-bill

Meadow Crane' s-bill is not native in Cornwall but is scattered and locally frequent. It is usually seen on road verges, particularly on grassy banks, but also occurs on waste ground, mine waste, in old orchards and as a garden relic. Sites include near St. Just (SW33V, 1993, C.N.French), near Fourlanes (SW63Z, 1995, D.T.Holyoak), the base of Carn Brea (SW64Q, 1997, C.N.French), Baldhu (SW74R, 1995, C.N.French), south of Downhill (SW86U, 1996, R.J.Murphy), The Fiddler (SW96J, 1996, I.J.Bennallick), near Lanterrick (SX07N, 1994, C.N.French), Rusey Cliff (SX19G, 1994, J.E.Hawksford), and near Kersbrook Cross (SX37C, 1994, M.Atkinson). It is also reported from St. Mary's, Isles of Scilly (Knight, 1996).
