AIZOACEAE
Rudolphi
( Fig-Marigold Family )
Subfamalies: nil.

Family Description: Herbs or small shrubs. Leaves usually opposite and fleshy. Calyx tubular or turbinate, often with fleshy lobes. Petals and stamens usually numerous. Ovary usually inferior or semi-inferior. Fruit woody and opening on moistening, or fleshy and indehiscent. Most of the genera that occur in Europe originate from South Africa. They are cultivated for ornament, and many have become naturalized in milder, more or less frost-free, coastal regions of S. and W. Europe. The taxonomy and nomenclature of this family is confused, since many species and genera have been described from cultivated plants in European gardens without knowledge of the precise origin of the material. Furthermore, these succulent plants make poor herbarium specimens and type specimens have not always been preserved or have not survived.
