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.

Nuphar lutea - Yellow Water-lily

Yellow Water-lily is thought to be introduced in Cornwall and can be found in scattered lakes and ponds including Pendarves Lake, near Camborne (SW63N, 1995, C.N.French) and in a pond on Goss Moor (SW96K, 1996, I.J.Bennallick), first recorded here in 1950.
