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.

Hemerocallis lilioasphodelus - Yellow Day-Lily

Yellow Day-Lily is a garden escape and was found to be established in 1996 in scrub near Boscastle Harbour (SX09V, R.J.Murphy). Prior to that, there are two old records from the beginning of the century, when it was growing in hedges. These were from Trevanion Farm near Wadebridge (SW97V, 1909, R.V.Tellam) and between Menheniot Station and Sandplace (SX26V, 1909, F.H.Davey).
