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.

Cochlearia anglica - English Scurvygrass

i> Cochlearia anglica is most frequent in the salt-marshes associated with the rivers Lynher and Tamar in south east Cornwall. Its distribution elsewhere is very restricted, but it may be found in the Gannel (SW76/86), the Camel (SW97), the Fowey (SX15) and the Looe (SX25). Surprisingly it is absent from the Hayle estuary (SW53), the Helford (SW72) and the Fal (SW83).
