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.

Raphanus raphanistrum subsp. maritimus - Sea Radish

Sea Radish is largely confined to the coastal fringe but occasionally occurs well inland such as at St. Stephen, near St. Austell (SW95L, 1997, M.Atkinson) and on a road hedge at Cross Lanes near Baldhu (SW74R, 1990, C.N.French). It is much more frequent along the south coast and is common on the Isles of Scilly. Recent records include Longrock (SW43V, 1997, C.N.French), Porthoustock (SW82A, 1997, M.Atkinson), Trefusis Point (SW83B, 1998, C.N.French), Turnaware Point (SW83J, 1998, R.E.Lees), Gerrans (SW83S, 1998, M.Tempest), the Gannel (SW86A, 1998, C.N.French), Nare Head (SW93D, 1998, I.J.Bennallick), Par beach (SX05R, 1998, I.J.Bennallick) and Lantic Bay (SX15K, 1998, I.J.Bennallick).
