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.

Mentha x suavis - Mentha suaveolens x aquatica

There are no recent records for this very rare hybrid between M. aquatica and M. suaveolens . It was reported near Menherion Farm, Stithians in 1967 (SW73D, R.B. Goodden) and from the Bone valley, north of Penzance in 1954 (SW43, B.M.Sturdy).
