Inula crithmoides - Golden-samphire
Golden-samphire is Nationally Scarce. In Cornwall it is locally abundant, but is absent from the Isles of Scilly. It can be found growing on steep, often precipitous, cliffs and is perhaps best seen, and is most easily accessible, in the Tintagel area (SX08P). Other sites include Black Carn (SW32R, 1994, J.Lawman), Porth Chapel (SW32V, 1994, J.Lawman), near St. Mawes (SW83L, 1998, M.Tempest), Mawgan Porth (SW86N, 1999, H.M.Meredith), Porthcothan (SW87L, 1999, I.J.Bennallick), Stepper Point (SW97E, 1993, D.I.Cockerill), Rumps (SW98F, 1994, C.I.Pogson), Glebe Cliff (SX08N, 1991, R.J.Murphy), Tregantle (SX35R, 1996, M.Atkinson) and Whitsand Bay (SX45A, 1997, M.Atkinson).
