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.

Hordeum murinum - Wall Barley

Wall Barley is locally frequent in many coastal sites in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, growing on waste ground and cliffs, also along road verges and from pavement cracks. It is especially common around Newquay, Padstow, Rock and the Rame peninsula. Inland it can be found on Goss Moor and in towns such as Camborne, Redruth and Truro.
