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.

Salix fragilis - Crack-willow

Crack-willow was probably introduced to Cornwall and can be found in a variety of scattered localities, although it seems to favour marshy situations. Recent records include Middle Crackington (SX19M, 1993, D.L.Brookman), Teacoombe (SX15U, 1997, M.Atkinson), Bishop's Wood, Sladesbridge (SX07A, 1997, I.J.Bennallick), St. Breock (SW97Q, 1998, I.J.Bennallick), Trekenning (SW96B, 1996, I.J.Bennallick), Golden Mill (SW94I, 1996, M.Tempest), near Trewithian (SW83T, 1998, R.E.Lees) and Marazion Marsh (SW53A, 1990, D.S.Flumm).
