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.

Callitriche stagnalis - Common Water-starwort

This is the most common water-starwort in Cornwall but it is occasional on the Isles of Scilly. It can be found in small streams, ditches, ponds, at the edges of rivers and on their banks, and in temporary muddy puddles. Common Water-starwort will tolerate drying out and can then be found in gateways and along tracks.
