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.

Rumex x sagorskii - Rumex sanguineus x crispus

The hybrid between R.crispus and R.sanguineus is fairly common in central and southern Britain but the following are the first records for Cornwall. It was discovered on a grassy bank at Pendower Beach (SW83Z, 1996, G.D.Kitchener), on a field bank at Castle Gotha Farm (SX04J, 1996, G.D.Kitchener) and at Clicker Quarry (SX26V, G.D.Kitchener). In 1997 one plant was found on a hedgebank near a caravan site at Pentewan (SX04D, G.D.Kitchener) and three plants were found to the east of Porthluney Cove in field margins (SW94Q, 1997, G.D.Kitchener).
