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.

Medicago sativa subsp. sativa - Lucerne

Lucerne regularly appears along the main road between Hayle (SW53) and Penzance (SW43) and is well established along a farm track on the North Cliffs, near Portreath (SW64L, 1990, C.N.French). It is probably an escape from cultivation at most sites.
