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.

Oenothera glazioviana - Large-flowered Evening-primrose

Large-flowered Evening-primrose is most frequent in West Cornwall, growing on waste ground, dunes, mine waste, grassy banks and road verges. Rare in East Cornwall, it has recently been found at such places as St. Dennis Junction (SW95J, 1996, I.J.Bennallick), Trevornick (SW96H, 1996, I.J.Bennallick), a disused quarry at Doublebois (SX16X, 1997, R.J.Murphy), and Werrington (SX38I, 1998, D.L.Brookman).
