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.

Inula helenium - Elecampane

Elecampane is a rare introduction which has been seen less often in the wild in recent years. It was reported at Paul in the 1980s (SW42T, B.M.Sturdy), the Mill Pond at Hayle in 1980 (SW53N, B.Jackson), at Probus (SW84Y, 1980s, K.L.Spurgin), near Kerley (SX29D, 1990, M.Atkinson) and at Duckpool (SS21A, 1982, T.J.Dingle).
