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.

Salix repens var. argentea

This is a willow of West Cornwall. Although it is known as a dune plant, (it is frequent in dune slacks on Penhale Sands, SW75T), it has also been found on moorland and heaths, particularly on the Lizard where it grows with Erica vagans and Ulex gallii (Margetts, 1988).
