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.

Oxalis exilis - Least Yellow-sorrel

Least Yellow-sorrel is usually found as a garden weed as in the Abbey Gardens on Tresco (SV81X) and at Glendurgan (SW72T) on the Helford. It has also been reported as naturalised at the Monkey Sanctuary, near Looe (SX25X, 1993, S.C.Madge) and amongst the dunes on Appletree Banks on Tresco (SV81X, 1995, D.T.Holyoak).
