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.

Poterium sanguisorba subsp. balearicum - Fodder Burnet

Fodder Burnet is a rare but persistent introduction. In recent years it has been found on a roadside bank at Portholland (SW94K, before 1980, L.J.Margetts), a disused quarry near Threemilestone (SW74S, 1997, C.N.French) and an abandoned railway line near Wadebridge (SX07B, 1990, R.J.Murphy).
