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.

Glebionis segetum - Corn Marigold

An arable weed which is still relatively frequent in Cornwall and is common on the Isles of Scilly. It grows most often around the margins of corn fields, but also through the crop itself. It can be found in some horticultural fields and is occasionally seen along road verges and road banks especially after the construction of new road systems.
