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.

Aurinia saxatilis - Golden Alison

Golden Alison has been reported twice as a garden escape; in 1929 on Tresco (SV81X, R.Meinertzhagen) where it had become established, and in 1992 at Widemouth, near Bude (SS20F, D.L.Brookman) where it was seeded into stony verges.
