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.

Poa nemoralis - Wood Meadow-grass

Wood Meadow-grass is largely confined to East Cornwall growing in woods (deciduous, conifer and mixed woodland), on and by shaded walls, and rarely in hedges. It can be found in such places as Golitha Woods (SX26J, 1986, G.E.Castle), Luckett Wood (SX37W, 1989, R.J.Murphy), Polbathic (SX35N, 1990, R.W.Gould), Clement's Wood at Idless (SW84J, before 1980, L.J.Margetts) and around Launceston (SX38H, 1998, R.J.Murphy). It is absent from the Isles of Scilly.
