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.

Genista hispanica subsp. occidentalis - Spanish Gorse

Several Spanish Gorse plants were found growing on a road verge at Trerulefoot in the 1980s (SX35J, E.Griffiths). It also occurs on the edge of the former mine, Pendarves Mine, near Camborne, as a relic of planting (SW63P).
