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.

Senecio erucifolius - Hoary Ragwort

Hoary Ragwort is locally frequent in the north east, especially along the coast, and in the south eastern extremity of Cornwall. It is found in base-rich soils and grows on Mullion Golf Course (SW62Q) and at Gwithian (SW54V, 1996, C.N.French). It has also been noted at Sticker (SW95V, 1997, M.Atkinson), in a set-aside field at Viverdon Down (SX36T, 1992, M.Atkinson) and on road verges in mid-Cornwall (SW96Q, 1998, I.J.Bennallick). Hoary Ragwort has not been recorded from the Isles of Scilly.
