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.

Lycium barbarum - Duke of Argyll's Teaplant

Duke of Argyll' s Teaplant is a species that is well established on the coast, growing in hedges, at the head of several beaches, such as at Seaton, and along several road verges. It is not easily separated from L. chinense and so it is possible that some of the records will be mis-identifications. It can be found at Prussia Cove (SW52N), Kingsand (SX45F) and in Newquay (SW86B).
