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.

Trifolium arvense - Hare's-foot Clover

Hare's-foot Clover is most frequent within a few hundred yards of the sea, growing on cliff slopes as at Lamorna Cove (SW42M), Lizard Point (SW71A) and Polridmouth (SX15A), by coastal footpaths as near St. German's Hut (SX35G) and at the base of cliffs on areas of beach above the High Tide mark as at Godrevy Cove on the Lizard (SW82A). It is occasionally found inland, as on road verges near Boyton (SX39G), and on a station platform at Luxulyan (SX05P). This species is common on the Isles of Scilly.
