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.

Petroselinum segetum - Corn Parsley

Corn Parsley may be found along the margins of arable fields, on nearby Cornish Hedges and in a few instances on grassy banks, as at St. Mawes (SW83L) and on hedges well away from any arable field, such as near Fraddon (SW85Y). It can be frequent in some fields at West Pentire (SW76Q) and is very frequent around the Camel estuary, being found at such sites as St. Merryn (SW87W), St. Minver (SW97T), at Trenain Farm, near St. Enodoc (SW97I), on Pentire Head (SW98F) and east of Chapel Amble (SW97X & SX07C).
