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.

Libertia formosa - Chilean-iris

Chilean-iris has been found self-sown on St. Mary's (SV91A), Isles of Scilly, at various places along the coastal path between Lelant Towans and St. Ives (SW54), on mine waste at Wheal Busy, Chacewater (SW74H, 1996, C.N.French) and on the roadside in Polkerris (SX05W, 1997, M.Atkinson).
