Flora of the Isles of Scilly

Pyramidal Orchid

Incredible flora found on these incredible islands


Some 28 miles southwest of the Cornish mainland lie the beautiful Isles of Scilly, an archipelago of 150 small, rocky islands. Only five are inhabited and 40 have some higher vegetation. Surrounded by the sea and washed by the Gulf Stream the climate is mild, supporting a unique flora of both native and alien plants.

A fantastic new publication by Rosemary Parslow and Ian Bennallick offers readers a comprehensive atlas of flora species on the Isles of Scilly. Each species is described fully with amazing colour photographs and also has a map of where the species can be found. It covers nearly 1,000 species, both native and introduced, and a wonderful intoduction into the natural history of the islands.
