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.

Brassica oleracea var. oleracea - Wild Cabbage

Nationally Scarce, Wild Cabbage is most common along the south coast, growing on cliffs, both at the top and down the cliff face. It is most frequent around Prussia Cove (SW52P, 1995, C.N.French), and on the cliffs by Fowey and Polruan, from Coombe Hawne to east of Washing Rocks (SX15A and SX15F, 1991, R.J.Murphy). Plants occur at Lamorna Cove (SW42M, 1997, C.N.French), near Polperro (SX25Q, 1988, R.M.Belringer), at Hannafore Point near Looe (SX25L, 1991, M.Atkinson) and at Seaton (SX35C, 1991, R.W.Gould). Casual plants can occur elsewhere.
