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.

Pulicaria dysenterica - Common Fleabane

Common Fleabane is frequent and widespread where suitable habitats exist, but is very rare on the Isles of Scilly. It grows in soils that get waterlogged for at least part of the year and is found in wet meadows, alongside watercourses, along road verges, in dune slacks and on waste ground.
