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.

Melilotus officinalis - Common Melilot

Ribbed Melilot is local on waste places, sand dunes, old quarries, disused railways and road verges. It can be found at such places as Loggans Mill (SW53U, 1991, A.L.Grenfell), near Longdowns (SW73M, 1985, K.L.Spurgin), Goss Moor (SW96K, 1996, I.J.Bennallick), on the Camel Trail (SW97W, 1994, R.J.Murphy) and Saltash (SX45J, 1990, R.W.Gould).
