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.

Elytrigia juncea subsp. boreoatlantica - Sand Couch-grass

Sand Couch is locally frequent around the coast of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, growing at the top of beaches and on fore-dunes. It is also abundant on the sandy/shingle areas of Loe Bar, near Helston (SW62M, 1986, A.Spalding).
