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.

Carthamus lanatus - Downy Safflower

Downy Safflower, a casual, was found between Truro and Malpas (SW84L, 1902, F.H.Davey), at Par Harbour (SX05R, 1912, C.C.Vigurs) and at Landulph (SX46F, 1944, J.H.Adams). It may have been a grain or bird seed alien.
