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.

Ficaria verna subsp. verna - Bulbiferous Lesser Celandine

This celandine is very rarely encountered and may well be under-recorded. Certainly, avid searching in mid-Cornwall by Ian Bennallick has resulted in such records as at Lower Polmorla and Rostigan (SW96S, 1996), near Tregamere (SW96H, 1995), Firhill Wood (SW86R, 1997), Penhale Moor (SW95D, 1997) and Barton Lane (SW95E, 1997). It also appears in a number of gardens such as Glendurgan (SW72T, 1993, D.T.Holyoak) and Higher Downgate (SX37R, 1997, M.Atkinson).
