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.

Antennaria dioica - Mountain Everlasting

Mountain Everlasting was once much more widespread in Cornwall, with its greatest concentration in the Perranporth area. It still grows on Gear Sands near Perranporth (SW75S) in a soil that is partly calcareous (shell-rich) and partly mine waste. Recently, at this locality the plants have increased both in number and extent.
