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.

Hieracium umbellatum - Narrow-leaved Hawkweed

i> Hieracium umbellatum is common on the Penwith and Carnmenellis granites where it grows mainly on hedges and roadside banks. Although it is found along the coast, most records are for inland sites. On the Isles of Scilly it occurs on St. Mary's.
