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.

Borago pygmaea - Slender Borage

An introduced species, Slender Borage is rare and there are very few records. It has been seen on St.Mary's, Isles of Scilly (SV91A, 1992, A.Underhill), Gillan Creek (SW72S, 1950, S.Bannister), St. Anthony-in-Meneage (SW72X, 1957, R.W.David), on a wall at Porth Navas (SW72N, 1965, D.Turner) and in a lawn at Mullion (SW61U, 1984, B.Tesseyman).
