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.

Myrica gale - Bog-myrtle

Bog-myrtle is restricted in occurrence to valley bog sites, which are often unshaded, and is associated with Molinia caerulea, and in mid-Cornwall, Schoenus nigricans. Sites include Carn Moor (SW75W, 1986, E.Jackson), Penhallow Moor (SW85H, 1998, A.Atkinson), Higher Bejowan (SW86Q, 1993, H.M.Meredith), Rosenannon Bog (SW96N, 1987, I.J.Bennallick) and Middle Taphouse (SX16R, 1997, M.Atkinson).
