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.

Colchicum autumnale - Meadow Saffron

Meadow Saffron is considered not to be native in Cornwall. It has only ever been recorded from two localities; the Coombe valley (SS21A, 1979, R.Dingle), where it was seen over a 20 year period (1959-79) and in 1982 from Murrayton (SX25X, P.Madge).
