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.

Linaria dalmatica - Balkan Toadflax

An introduced species, Balkan Toadflax is rare and in Cornwall is always associated with railway lines. It could still be seen at Angarrack (SW53Z) until 1982 and by the old branch line at Par (SX05R) in 1972, but has been most persistent at St. Dennis Junction, Goss Moor (SW95J). It was first seen here in 1976 (B.Boothby) and plants were seen again in 1996 (I.J.Bennallick).
