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.

Foeniculum vulgare - Fennel

Fennel is often found within a mile of the sea growing on hedges, road banks and verges, as well as on dunes. Sometimes it is planted in gardens and is occasionally found as a garden escape. It is common on the Isles of Scilly and at Perranporth (SW75M), around Hayle (SW53), the Camel (SW97) and the Rame peninsula (SX45).
