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.

Lathyrus annuus - Fodder Pea

Fodder Pea was observed growing as a tan-bark alien at the Grampound Tannery in 1983 (SW94J, K.L.Spurgin). Prior to that there are old records from gardens in Penzance (SW43Q, B.M.Sturdy), Tolvaddon, Camborne (SW64L, 1977, R.Smith) and MacFarlanes Down, Isles of Scilly (SV91, 1972, L.A.Harvey).
