Plant family: myrsinaceae


The two genuses whose plants are currently placed in myrsinaceae by GRIN, cyclamen and lysimachia, were both previously included in primulaceae. While I wish taxonomists would make up their mind already, I dutifully reclassified them in my database.

I use the GRIN online query system to determine plant families. The list below shows the plants in my database listed as members of the myrsinaceae family. Click on the botanical name of any plant to go to the plant portrait. For a list of all the plant families represented in our garden, see my families page.
