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.

Arenaria serpyllifolia subsp. serpyllifolia - Thyme-leaved Sandwort

Although mainly a coastal plant, Thyme-leaved Sandwort can sometimes be found well inland growing on old mortared walls, in quarries, on mine waste and in fields. Near the sea it is frequent on fixed sand dunes and can be found in cliff-top grassland.
