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.

Teesdalia nudicaulis - Shepherd's Cress

A plant of open habitats, it may be found on walls and on bare patches on Cornish Hedges. On the south coast it grows in dry stony ground on cliff-tops, by paths and in very short grassland, as at Nare Head (SW93D, 1991, M.Atkinson) and on the Rame peninsula (SX44E, 1992, R.J.Murphy). Other sites include near Polmarth (SW73C, 1992, C.N.French), Carne Church (SW95P, 1995, R.J.Murphy), Gerrans Point (SX04J, 1992, R.E.Lees), and by the railway near Criggan (SX06A, 1997, I.J.Bennallick).
