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.

Carex remota - Remote Sedge

Common and widespread in suitable well-shaded habitats, growing in woods, in ditches, along roadside banks, at the base of hedges, in wooded areas around quarries and often in wetter areas than those where C. sylvatica is found. Remote Sedge is far more frequent than Wood-sedge and yet there are woods, like Tehidy, north of Camborne (SW64G) where only C. sylvatica can be found. Carex remota is absent from the Isles of Scilly.
