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.

Danthonia decumbens - Heath-grass

A grass of inland and coastal heaths. It is frequent on Bodmin Moor, in some of the heaths on the Lizard and occurs on the Isles of Scilly. It may also be found in some coastal grasslands, on moors and occasionally in dune grassland, such as on Gwithian Common (SW54V).
