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.

Lotus corniculatus - Common Bird's-foot-trefoil

i> Lotus corniculatus is particularly common in base-rich habitats and, as a result, is found in abundance on the north coast, shell-rich, dune systems. It will also grow on any waste ground, including mine waste and china clay, in quarries, in cliff-top turf, on coastal walls and hedges, roadsides and grass verges and in any dry or sandy fields.
