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 x ambigua - Salix repens x aurita

One plant of this hybrid, between S. aurita and S. repens , was found on the floor of a small, long abandoned china clay quarry near Carn Brea in Penwith (SW32Z, 1991, R.J.Murphy), as well as on the edge of Predannack Airfield (SW61Y, 1996, C.N.French) on the Lizard Peninsula. It was last recorded on the Lizard by F.T.Richards c.1900 (Davey, 1902).
