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.

Euphorbia lathyris - Caper Spurge

Caper Spurge is a casual introduction growing in waste places, as a garden weed, on hedges, and along road verges. Recent finds include from the Roche area (SW96V, 1995, I.J.Bennallick) and from Cremyll (SX45L, M.Atkinson) in 1997.
