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.

Convolvulus arvensis - Field Bindweed

Field Bindweed is very frequent along much of the coast and on the Isles of Scilly, but is scarce down the spine of Cornwall and on moors. It may be seen on Cornish Hedges, roadside verges, in gardens, on dune slopes and dune grassland, in unimproved pasture and in arable fields.
