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.

Daucus carota subsp. gummifer - Sea Carrot

Sea Carrot grows along the immediate coastal fringe on cliffs and dunes. It probably still occurs at all its old sites, such as St. Ives (SW54A) and Gwennap Head (SW32Q). Around the headlands at West Pentire and Holywell (SW76Q & SW75U) and along the Lizard coast (SW71) it is particularly frequent.
