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 crithmoides - Golden-samphire

Golden-samphire is Nationally Scarce. In Cornwall it is locally abundant, but is absent from the Isles of Scilly. It can be found growing on steep, often precipitous, cliffs and is perhaps best seen, and is most easily accessible, in the Tintagel area (SX08P). Other sites include Black Carn (SW32R, 1994, J.Lawman), Porth Chapel (SW32V, 1994, J.Lawman), near St. Mawes (SW83L, 1998, M.Tempest), Mawgan Porth (SW86N, 1999, H.M.Meredith), Porthcothan (SW87L, 1999, I.J.Bennallick), Stepper Point (SW97E, 1993, D.I.Cockerill), Rumps (SW98F, 1994, C.I.Pogson), Glebe Cliff (SX08N, 1991, R.J.Murphy), Tregantle (SX35R, 1996, M.Atkinson) and Whitsand Bay (SX45A, 1997, M.Atkinson).
