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).
