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.

Narcissus x medioluteus - Primrose-peerless

Primrose-peerless appears as a relic of cultivation and as an escape on both the Isles of Scilly and the mainland. Most recently it has been found on the Towans at Upton (SW53U, 1993, D.T.Holyoak) and Gwithian (SW54V, 1993, D.T.Holyoak), in Lizard Town (SW61W, 1994, D.T.Holyoak) and in Swanpool cemetery (SW83A, 1994, D.T.Holyoak).
