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.

Blackstonia perfoliata - Yellow-wort

Although Yellow-wort is very localised in Cornwall it can be abundant where it occurs. It may be found on dune grassland as at Gear Sands (SW75S), Penhale Sands (SW75T) and between Polzeath and Rock (SW97I), in coastal fields, as near Trebetherick (SW97I), and on field banks, as at Sandymouth (SS21A). Other habitats include disused railway lines, such as the Camel Trail (SW97) and St. Dennis Junction (SW95J), china clay waste, as at Goonamarris (SW95M), road verges, as at Innis Downs (SX06G), and on mineralised soil, as at Cligga Head (SW75L).
