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.

Ranunculus sceleratus - Celery-leaved Buttercup

Celery-leaved Buttercup is a very local plant which is most frequent within the tidal sections of the Fal (SW84), Camel (SW97), West Looe (SX25), Lynher (SX35) and Tamar catchments (SX45). It normally grows in brackish conditions in marshes, fields, and the shores of tidal rivers.
