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 latifolia - Mexican Oxalis

Garden Pink-sorrel can be found as a weed of nurseries, flower beds, and gardens in West Cornwall. It is also reported from waste ground, often where garden refuse has been dumped, and rarely from fields on the Isles of Scilly. Sites include Gulval Nursery (SW43V), Trebah Gardens (SW72T), Bonython Manor (SW62V) and Copperhouse, Hayle (SW53U).
