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.

Valerianella locusta - Lamb's Lettuce

i> Valerianella locusta grows on walls, waste ground, on dunes, in arable fields and in gardens and has been found on mine waste at Dolcoath, in Camborne (SW64Q, 1994, C.N.French). It has been recorded on the Isles of Scilly. Many of the early records for this species may refer to V. carinata, which is now very common in Cornwall.
