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 telephium - Orpine

Orpine is frequent and widespread in south east Cornwall, but rarer elsewhere. It is found alongside roads, especially in hedges, and on waste ground. Sometimes it is found in woods. Records include near Four Burrows (SW74P, 1997, C.N.French), near Rose (SW75S, 1995, C.N.French), Carn Moor (SW75W, 1992, I.J.Bennallick), Restormel Farm (SX16A, 1996, M.Atkinson), Splatt (SX28I, 1997, M.Atkinson), by the old canal at Tamartown (SX39F, 1992, M.Atkinson), Torpoint (SX45I, 1997, M.Atkinson) and north of Cargreen (SX46G, 1997, R.Fitzgerald).
