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.

Crocus x stellaris - Yellow Crocus Hybrid

This is the common yellow-flowered crocus that is so widely planted in town gardens, and is increasingly planted along road verges with daffodils. It has been recorded as naturalised at a few isolated places including Swanpool cemetery (SW83A, 1994, D.T.Holyoak) and Lelant cemetery (SW53N, 1994, D.T.Holyoak).
