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.

Trifolium incarnatum subsp. incarnatum - Crimson Clover

Crimson Clover is a rare introduction. It has been found as a tan-bark casual at the tannery in Grampound (SW94J, 1983, L.J.Margetts), and along road margins such as by Marazion roundabout (SW53A, 1984, B.M.Sturdy) and following a road widening scheme at St. Mellion (SX36Y, 1996, M.Atkinson). In 1995 it was abundant in a kale field near Lower Polmorla near St. Wenn (SW96S, I.J.Bennallick) and has also been seen in fields on the Isles of Scilly.
