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.

Euphorbia portlandica - Portland Spurge

Nationally Scarce, Portland Spurge is most frequent along the north coast, growing on semi-fixed dunes and along the cliffs on rocky slopes and on coastal walls and hedges. It also grows on shingle, as on Loe Bar (SW62M), occasionally on storm beaches, as at Lantic Bay (SX15K), and is frequent on the Scillonian islands with the exception of St. Mary's.
