Dawlish Warren Flora


Dawlish Warren has long been recognised as an important botanical site. Sand Crocus was noted here as long ago as 1834 and until a recent discovery in southern Cornwall, the Warren was the only known UK site for this species. Several other nationally rare species also occur here along with another 30+ species which are nationally scarce.

 

This page covers all higher plants recorded on the Dawlish Warren and builds on the previous work of many botanists and follows the order of the published reserve flora produced by Mary De Lemos. This flora is available from Teignbridge District Council or direct from the Visitor Centre on the Reserve.

 

The following list is intended as a supplement to the original Flora, so only information on the recent presence or absence of each species is given, unless a new species has been found or rediscovered since the 1992 publication. Despite the reserve being in its 30th year, new species are being discovered all the time, some are garden exotics persisting for only a short time but others are local or even national rarities.

Please pass on any records you may have to the website, they will of course be passed on directly to the reserve wardens.

 

It is our intention to try to use Dawlish Warren photographs of many species on this website, both common and rare.  If you can help, please get in touch.
