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.

Catananche caerulea - Cupid's Dart

A rare garden escape which was found at Wheal Tehidy in the Tolskithy valley, near Redruth, in 1992 (SW64V, J.Dadd). This formerly heavily mined valley has proved to be a haven for many alien plants in recent years.
