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.

Lysimachia nummularia - Creeping-Jenny

Creeping-Jenny is rather scattered in Cornwall. A garden escape in origin, it has become completely naturalised in some places. Recent records include Hollygrove Wood (SS21B, 1997, M.Atkinson), north east of Pawton (SW97Q, 1997, I.J.Bennallick), St. Ewe (SW94T, 1990, M.Tempest) and around Canada (SS20P, 1992, D.L.Brookman). It is recorded for the Abbey Gardens, Tresco, Isles of Scilly (SV81X).
