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.

Conopodium majus - Pignut

Pignut can be frequent along woodland tracks, in old pastures and on roadside hedgebanks. It is also found under the shelter of scrub and on heaths, especially under the cover of bracken. On the Isles of Scilly it is rare and reported only from St. Mary's, Tresco and St. Martin's.
