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.

Crocus flavus - Yellow Crocus

Yellow Crocus was found as a probable garden outcast in Polperro in 1848 (SX25A, T.Q.Couch), and was sparingly naturalised in Lanivet churchyard in the 1980s (SX06H, R.Margetts) and at Laflouder Fields on the Lizard in 1989 (SW61, N.B.Exelby). These records may refer to Crocus x stellaris Haw.
