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.

Ornithopus sativus - Serradella

Serradella has been found on gabbro spoil heaps at Dean Quarry (SW82A, 1984, A.J.Byfield) and at a number of places in the china clay district where it was originally planted, such as the Treviscoe Clay Works (SW95N, 1980s, L.J.Margetts). It is not persistent.
