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.

Ulex x breoganii - A gorse hybrid

Given the abundance and often close association of both its parents this hybrid has hardly ever been reported. There are records from Goonhilly Downs (SW72F, 1983, M.G.B.Hughes), above Lantic Bay (SX15K, 1983, M.G.B.Hughes), Lower Carnkie (SW63Z, 1993, D.T.Holyoak) and near Kynance Cove (SW61W, 1993, D.T.Holyoak). It may well be under-recorded.
