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.

Cotoneaster integrifolius - Small-leaved Cotoneaster

Although the map for C. simonsii would suggest otherwise, C. integrifolius is the most common, naturalised, Cotoneaster in West Cornwall. It is especially frequent on the former mining sites where it can form large smothering stands amongst ruined buildings and across burrows. It also grows around old mine sites in East Cornwall such as Phoenix Mine near Minions (SX27R). In towns, Small-leaved Cotoneaster grows from pavement cracks and mortared walls.
