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.

Arrhenatherum elatius subsp. elatius - False Oat-grass

This variety of False Oat-grass is rare in Cornwall. It has been found around the Camel estuary more frequently than elsewhere in Cornwall and has proved to be common in local areas of the Hayle-Gwithian Towans (SW54Q, 1996, C.N.French).
