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.

Sagittaria sagittifolia - Arrowhead

Arrowhead was seen at Carfury, near Madron (SW43M, 1985, K.Campin), in a small quarry which is flooded. A number of other exotic plants have been found there suggesting it was introduced as an aquatic throw-out. It has since disappeared.
