Insight into Cornish Heath (Erica vagans): it is native but whilst it may be locally abundant on The Lizard, it is not found anywhere else in Great Britain and at only one site in County Fermanagh in Northern Ireland where it is specially protected by law.
It favours alkaline soils found on the serpentine rocks of The Lizard and it was voted the County flower of Cornwall in 2002.
