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.

Stachys arvensis - Field Woundwort

Field Woundwort is most frequent as a weed in arable and horticultural fields. It can also be found in gardens and allotments and in disturbed ground by new road systems. The latter is the source of the single record for SX17, among waste ground weeds by the A30 near Temple (SX17G, 1988, R.J.Murphy). It is also found in a coastal field, near Trebetherick, growing with such plants as Blackstonia perfoliata and Trisetum flavescens (SW97I, 1987, T.J.Dingle). On the Isles of Scilly Field Woundwort is a common plant.
