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.

Scilla autumnalis - Autumnal Squill

Nationally Scarce, Autumn Squill is much less common than Spring Squill and is absent from the Isles of Scilly. It grows both on the north coast and on the Lizard in cliff-top short-turf grassland. On the Lizard it may also be found on coastal hedgebanks and inland on heaths. Around Gwithian (SW54V) and Godrevy Farm (SW54W) it grows in turf near dune systems.
