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.

Catapodium rigidum - Hard Poa

Fern-grass grows in open, rather stony places including walls, dry banks and sandy areas especially near the coast. It can also be found inland as on walls in Bodmin (SX06T, 1987, K.Bryson) and at various places around Goss Moor, particularly St. Dennis Junction (SW95J, 1996, I.J.Bennallick).
