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.

Camelina sativa - Gold-of-pleasure

Gold-of-pleasure has been found in various Council tips, as at Leedstown (SW63C, 1980s, K.L.Spurgin), as a weed in Penlee and Morrab Gardens in Penzance (SW42U, 1984, K.Campin) and as a casual at scattered, generally built-up, locations.
