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.

Ajuga reptans - Bugle

Bugle is very common in damp, shaded areas, in woods, roadside verges, wet areas in fields, on stream banks and occasionally in wooded areas near china clay waste. It is more common in East Cornwall, probably due to the greater amount of woodland, but is very rare on the Isles of Scilly. A white-flowered form has been seen in the Penrose estate, near Porthleven (SW62M) and in Cardinham Woods (SX16D).
