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.

Myriophyllum aquaticum - Parrot's-feather

A recent introduction that seems to be rapidly spreading and naturalising in a variety of municipal lakes, quarry pools, garden ponds and in many naturally occurring freshwater lakes and pools. It has been reported from such places as Little Larrick (SX25H, 1997, M.Atkinson), Breney Common (SX06K, 1996, M.Atkinson), Morrab Gardens (SW42U, 1996, C.N.French), Goss Moor (SW96K, 1996, I.J.Bennallick) and Tregembo (SW53Q, 1992, C.N.French).
