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.

Viburnum tinus - Laurustinus

The majority of records for Laurustinus are from planted specimens in estate gardens. It was, however, found growing near the harbour at Padstow in 1989 (SW97H, R.J.Murphy) as a garden escape. It was also found growing on St. Agnes, Isles of Scilly in 1992 (SV80Z, A.Underhill).
