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.

Senecio viscosus - Sticky Groundsel

Sticky Groundsel is rare and is possibly an introduction. It has often been found on railway sites, such as on the Camel Trail between Wadebridge and Padstow (SW97), and in a goods yard at Saltash (SX45J, before 1980, E.Griffiths). It was also discovered growing on St. Mary's, Isles of Scilly, in 1992 (SV91B, A.Underhill).
