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.

Rumex sanguineus var. sanguineus - Red-veined Dock

This variety of Wood Dock is distinctive with its blood-red leaf-veins. It is usually casual in occurrence and may be of garden origin. The most recent records are from St. Just-in-Roseland (SW83M, 1990, R.J.Murphy) and south of Portquin (SW97U, 1997, M.Atkinson). At this site the plants were locally frequent and were growing in Salix woodland in a steep-sided valley.
