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.

Festuca rubra subsp. commutata - Chewing's Fescue

Chewing' s-fescue is a rare introduction which has mainly been reported from Council tips and waste ground. In 1989 it was found growing on a hedge in Looe (SX25L, R.W.Gould) and in 1990 plants were found on a grassy bank in Tresillian (SW84M, K.L.Spurgin).
