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.

Lapsana communis - Nipplewort

Nipplewort is common and widespread along road verges, particularly in shaded situations, on the margins of woodland and beside high Cornish Hedges. It is absent from more exposed places such as the immediate coastal fringe, the western Lizard and from the high moorlands of St. Austell and Bodmin Moor. It is also rare in the Camborne-Redruth area (SW64/SW74).
