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.

Parapholis strigosa - Hard-grass

Mainly a salt-marsh grass which can be seen in the creeks of the Tamar estuary (SX45), in the Camel between Wadebridge and Padstow (SW97G) and in the Gannel (SW86A). It could still occur in the Hayle estuary (SW53P) and in the tidal parts of the Fal (SW83).
