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.

Tragopogon porrifolius - Salsify

A rare introduction, Salsify is a coastal plant which is usually found in small numbers at a scattering of sites on both the north and south coasts. Unusually, hundreds of plants appeared along a quarter of a mile length of the Camborne-Redruth bypass in 1997, near the Pool junction (SW64Q, C.N.French), possibly an introduction via seed.
