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.

Bromus hordeaceus subsp. ferronii - Least Soft-brome

i> Bromus hordeaceus ssp. ferronii is almost confined to the Lizard cliffs, but it may also be found on the cliff edges at Pentire Point by the Camel estuary. Bromes are easily dwarfed by exposure when growing on Cornish cliffs and such dwarfed forms can be mistaken for Bromus hordeaceus ssp. ferronii. For this reason some of the other records for this grass must be treated with caution. It is absent from the Isles of Scilly.
