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.

Spergularia marina - Lesser Sea-spurrey

Lesser Sea-spurrey may be found on muddy sands and in salt-marshes in all the estuaries. Perhaps the best places to see it are in the lower reaches of the Tamar and the Lynher (SX35 & SX45) or in the Camel Estuary between Wadebridge and Padstow (SW97). It has been recorded on the Isles of Scilly.
