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.

Agrostis stolonifera - Fiorin

Very common throughout Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, Creeping Bent is found in a wide variety of damp or wet habitats including marshes, moorland, dune slacks, damp coastal grassland and in flush, or seepage, sites on cliffs. It may also be found on road verges, in gardens, at margins of arable fields, in waste places and, rarely, on the top of old mortared walls.
