Range & Status
Native. European Temperate species. Believed to be native in north-eastern parts of south-west England and south-east Wales, though its native status needs confirmation (Cheffings & Farrell (Eds.), 2005).
Considered to be native at one site in north-east Cornwall (SS21). The majority of other records are doubtful and may be referable to the introduced A. x cammarum .
Habitat & Ecology
Grows on river banks that periodically flood, in or along the edges of woodland.
The site where it is considered to be native in Cornwall is owned by the National Trust.
