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.

Sedum forsterianum - Rock Stonecrop

Though Nationally Scarce, in Cornwall Rock Stonecrop is a widespread introduction. It has been found naturalised on waste ground, mine waste, walls, hedges, by railway tracks and in cemeteries. Some of the recent records include Rosewarne (SW64K, 1996, C.N.French), Wheal Busy (SW74H, 1996, C.N.French), Tregoss Junction (SW96Q, 1998, I.J.Bennallick), Trethurgy (SX05H, 1993, R.J.Murphy), Trevalga (SX09V, 1996, H.Watts), Golant (SX15H, 1997, I.J.Bennallick), and Werrington (SX38I, 1998, D.Dupree).
