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.

Lathyrus tuberosus - Tuberous Pea

Tuberous Pea is well established at Angarrack Bridge (SW53Z) and in Phillack Towans (SW53U), both near Hayle. There are also a few recent records from south east Cornwall such as at Southdown/Millbrook in 1990 (SX45G, R.W.Gould).
