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.

Holcus mollis - Creeping Soft-grass

A common and widespread grass that is most frequent in woodland. It may also be found on stream banks, in river valleys and damp meadows, road verges, quarries, disused china clay workings and in a narrow band near the top of many Cornish Hedges. Creeping Soft-grass has only recently been reported on the Isles of Scilly on St. Martin's and St. Mary's (Knight, 1996).
