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.

Hieracium sabaudum - Broad-leaved Hawkweed

Broad-leaved Hawkweed was recorded (as H.boreale Fries) below the old camp at Cadsonbury in 1874 (Briggs, 1880). In 1971 it was refound (SX37N, L.J.Margetts), and was still there in 1989 (M.Atkinson). A few plants of Hieracium growing on Kit Hill, near Callington, may also be referrable to this species (SX37Q, 1987, L.J.Margetts). There are old records from Falmouth (SW83B, 1856, H.C.Bastian) and Kilkhampton (SS21K, 1886, W.M.Rogers).
