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.

Alopecurus geniculatus - Marsh Foxtail

Marsh Foxtail is locally frequent both in Cornwall and on the Isles of Scilly. It often occurs in places where the ground is waterlogged for much of the year, especially poached and compacted ground in gateways. It is particularly common on the Culm Measures, in north east Cornwall, and in the mid-Cornwall moors.
