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.

Myosotis discolor - Yellow and Blue Forget-me-not

Changing Forget-me-not is common in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. It is often found on the top of Cornish Hedges where vegetation is sparse, but grows in fields, on waste ground, in dunes and by coastal tracks. A white-flowered form has been seen near the entrance to Pendennis Castle at Falmouth (SW83F).
