Limonium procerum subsp. procerum

Range & Status

Native: very rare, vulnerable and endemic. Found scattered around the coast from Pembrokeshire to Dorset with one outlier in Ireland.

Regional Distribution

Known from 14 1km squares, with sites scattered along the north coast, and one near St. Mawes on the south coast.

Habitat & Ecology

On crumbling cliffs and sea-walls.


The colonies on man-made coastal structures (as at St. Mawes) are vulnerable to being destroyed by over-zealous maintenence, and where it grows naturally on edge of cliffs, cliff erosion may affect populations.


Some sites are on National Trust land.
