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.

Solanum sarachoides - Leafy-fruited Nightshade

This nightshade has long been known on St. Martin's, Isles of Scilly as a bulb field weed (most recently SV91H, 1992, D.Barrett). In Cornwall there is one record from the Council tip at Bissoe (SW74Q, 1971, B.E.M.Garratt).
