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.

Borago officinalis - Borage

Borage is frequent at the south-western fringe of Penwith (SW32) from Porthcurno to St. Just and around Newquay (SW86). It is of more sporadic occurrence elsewhere and is most common in coastal habitats. It is often associated with cultivation but can also be found in permanent pasture and on roadside banks. Borage does occur on the Isles of Scilly.
