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.

Carex laevigata - Smooth-stalked Sedge

i> Carex laevigata is frequent in East Cornwall, particularly in wet woodland and along rides. It is more local in West Cornwall, but can be noticeably frequent in the woods around the Helford (SW72). There are also records for grassland flush sites in valleys and on Molinia moor where it merges into scrub. It is recorded on the Isles of Scilly.
