Rather rare, Bugloss may be found on light, sandy soils as at Phillack (SW53U, 1990, N.D.Wood) and Gear Sands (SW75S, 1983, E.Jackson) or in arable fields, as at West Pentire Farm (SW76Q, 1993, H.M.Meredith) and on Forrabury Stitches, near Boscastle (SX09V, 1991, R.J.Murphy). It has also been reported from Boscregan Farm (SW32P, 1991, M.Cuddy), the Clowance estate (SW63H, 1990, R.J.Murphy), an arable field at Tehidy (SW64G, 1991, C.N.French), near Holywell (SW75U, 1996, H.M.Meredith), Rushy Green (SW76V, 1990, N.D.Wood), Newquay (SW86B, 1994, H.M.Meredith), Harlyn Bay (SW87S, 1998, H.M.Meredith), the St. Enodoc area (SW97I, 1991, R.W.David), Pennygillam (SX38G, 1995, M.Atkinson), Southdown Quarry (SX45G, 1990, S.C.Madge) and is a common plant on the Isles of Scilly.
