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.

Achillea ptarmica - Sneezewort

Sneezewort is common in wet meadows and valley marshes in mid-Cornwall and on the Culm Measures of north east Cornwall. It is also found on road hedges and banks. Apart from the Lizard, where it is frequent in wet heaths, it is very rare in West Cornwall and seems to be decreasing much as it is elsewhere in lowland Britain. Sneezewort is absent from the Isles of Scilly.
