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.

Adoxa moschatellina - Moschatel

An inconspicuous plant of woods, river banks and shaded, moist hedgebanks by roads and fields. It flowers early and is only recognisable with ease for a short period in the year. Moschatel is frequent in East Cornwall. The extant outlying site is in a hedge at Roseworthy near Camborne (SW63E).
