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.

Salvia verbenaca - Wild Clary

Wild Clary is most frequent on the north coast, growing in dune grassland and scrub on Lelant, Phillack and Gwithian Towans (SW53 and SW54), Holywell (SW75U), at Constantine Bay (SW87M) and among the dunes at Rock (SW97I). It may also be seen on sandy banks, as at Porthtowan (SW64Y), and on hedgebanks affected by blown sand as at West Pentire (SW76Q). Elsewhere it is rather scattered, including on the Isles of Scilly.
