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.

Anagallis arvensis subsp. foemina - Blue Pimpernel

It is thought that most of the Blue Pimpernel records are in fact blue-flowered forms of Scarlet Pimpernel. The record from Harlyn Bay in 1923 (SW87S, L.Melville) and from Lizard Village before 1980 (SW71B, J.M.Yorston) are considered to be correct.
