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.

Apium graveolens - Wild Celery

Local in occurrence, Wild Celery grows most frequently in brackish places in the rias, near salt-marshes and saltings, such as by Pencalenick (SW84M), in the Gannel (SW86A), near St. Germans (SX35Y) and at Cotehele (SX46J). It may also be found in marshes near the sea, as at Marazion Marsh (SW53B) and Pendower (SW94Q), but is absent on the Isles of Scilly.
