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.

Trisetum flavescens - Yellow Oat-grass

Yellow Oat-grass is particularly common around the Camel estuary and along the Camel Trail (SW97). It is also relatively frequent in grasslands in the south east of Cornwall such as around the Lynher estuary (SX35) and on Rame Head (SX44). It has not been seen recently on Penhale Sands (SW75T), though it still occurs at Gwithian (SW54V). It is very rare on the Isles of Scilly.
