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.

Tristagma uniflora - Spring Starflower

Spring Starflower has been recorded from scattered coastal localities in Cornwall and on the Isles of Scilly. Where it has become well established this garden escape can occur in large numbers, such as on St. Mary's, Isles of Scilly (SV91). Recent records include Pendower House (SW83Z, 1997, M.Atkinson), Carn Towan (SW32T, 1996, C.N.French) and Portreath (SW64M, 1993, D.T.Holyoak).
