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 arvensis - Corn Mint

Corn Mint is rare in West Cornwall, infrequent in East Cornwall and absent from the Isles of Scilly. It occurs in arable fields, in damp scrubby grassland and occasionally on roadsides. Sites include St. Newlyn East (SW85I, 1998, H.M.Meredith), south east of Quoit (SW96F, 1998, I.J.Bennallick), Leeches Farm (SX07H, 1991, R.J.Murphy), Davidstow (SX18H, 1998, I.J.Bennallick), Tamarstone Bridge (SS20X, 1998, M.Atkinson), Kingcombe Farm (SX37I, 1998, M.Atkinson) and near Eggbeare (SX38J, 1998, L.McDonnell).
