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 purpureum subsp. purpureum - Little-Robin

Although Little-Robin seems to be increasing its range around Newquay (SW76 & SW86) and the Camel Estuary (SW97), it has not been refound at sites to the west of Camborne, such as the St. Ives area. This Red Data Book species grows on low hedge banks in the Dunes at Porth Joke (SW76Q), along the disused railway and quarries of the Camel Trail (SW97), on Cornish Hedges, by roads, in fields, and in coastal scrub along cliffs as at Portloe (SW93J).
