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.

Hermodactylus tuberosus - Snake's-head Iris

Snake' s-head Iris is an established garden escape which has been recorded from scattered localities. It is naturalised in several places, such as near Gillan (SW72X, 1982, D.R.Towner), on the Scorrier estate (SW74G, before 1980, H.Barrett) and between Sheviock and Crafthole (SX35S, 1983, D.Stevenson).
