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.

Artemisia biennis - Lesser Mugwort

Lesser Mugwort appeared as a garden weed in Charlestown in 1929 (SX05F, W.Tresidder). Like the only other record from Par (SX05R, 1908, G.C.Druce) it may well have arrived via imports into the docks.
