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.

Silene vulgaris subsp. vulgaris - Bladder Campion

The former mining site of Dolcoath (SW64K, 1993, C.N.French) and one or two other mine tips in and around Camborne support large populations of Bladder Campion. In other areas it can be both sparse and sporadic in occurrence. Where hedges are being flailed less often, the species is increasing. It is absent from the Isles of Scilly.
