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.

Olearia traversii - Ake-ake

Ake-ake is a persistent garden escape on the Isles of Scilly where it is thought to be self-sown. On the mainland it has been found at Sennen Cove (SW32N, 1994, D.T.Holyoak) and at Hayle Bay, near Polzeath (SW97J, 1994, R.J.Murphy).
