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.

Bromus hordeaceus subsp. hordeaceus - Soft-brome

This is the most common and widespread subspecies of B. hordeaceus in Cornwall. It grows along roadside verges, by tracks and in permanent pasture fields. It can also be found on coastal cliffs where it may be dwarfed by exposure and show a superficial resemblance to B. hordeaceus ssp. ferronii .
