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.

Viola x lambertii - Violet Cross

The hybrid between V. lactea and V. riviniana is most frequently seen in maritime heaths on the north coast between Godrevy (SW54W) and St. Agnes (SW65V) and on the Lizard Heaths. Here, it is often more common than the V. lactea parent. Recent records include south east of Predannack Wollas (SW61S, 1997, M.Atkinson), west Lizard Downs (SW61W, 1998, R.J.Murphy), Traboe Cross (SW72F, 1995, C.N.French), Carrine Common (SW74W, 1994, D.T.Holyoak), near Coombe Farm (SX15J, 1997, I.J.Bennallick) and Mulberry Pit (SX06C, 1996, I.J.Bennallick).
