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.

Verbascum nigrum - Dark Mullein

Dark Mullein is mainly a south coast species, and is especially frequent in the Roseland Peninsula (SW83). It also grows in and around the dune systems at Hayle (SW53U) and a few inland sites as at Trehane Barton (SW84U) and the Goss Moor area (SW96K). It occurs on waste ground, road verges, walls, grassy banks, railway embankments and sometimes on mine waste.
