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.

Armoracia rusticana - Horse-radish

Horse-radish has always been rare. It is most often seen along the coast, although there are a few sporadic records from inland. It occurs in waste places, on road banks, field margins and occasionally on top of Cornish Hedges. Sites include Upton Towans (SW53Z, 1994, D.T.Holyoak), Wheal Busy (SW74H, 1998, R.J.Murphy), East Pentire Head (SW76V, 1996, H.M.Meredith), near Porth (SW86G, 1997, H.M.Meredith), Trekenning (SW96B, 1996, I.J.Bennallick), near Portquin (SW98Q, 1994, R.J.Murphy) and Higher Beeny (SX19B, 1993, C.N.French).
