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.

Allium neapolitanum - White Garlic

Neapolitan Garlic has become naturalised in a few localities, chiefly on roadsides banks and hedges. It has long been known to persist in the Caerthillian valley on the Lizard (SW61W). Other sites include Point (SW83E, 1990, N.S.De Sausmarez), near Malpas (SW84L, 1982, L.J.Margetts), at Heamoor (SW43Q, 1988, B.M.Sturdy), on a hedge near Trethevy (SX08U, 1995, C.N.French) and on St. Martin's, Isles of Scilly (SV91I, 1989, R.J.Murphy).
