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.

Alopecurus myosuroides - Black-grass

Black-grass is a weed of arable land and waste ground. It has always been rare in Cornwall and generally of casual occurrence. The two recent records came from a road hedge, near Kea School (SW84G, 1990, D.Kessell) and from an arable field near Padstow (SW97D, 1994, R.Tofts).
