Plant Family


Family CN: Hydrolea Family
Family Code: HYDROL
Family Authority: Berchtold & J. Presl 1820
Summary: A family of one genus and about 12 species, herbs and shrubs of water bodies and wetlands, primarily tropical. The Hydroleaceae is not closely related to Hydrophyllaceae; recent molecular data confirm the view prevailing through most of the 19th century that Hydrolea should be placed in its own family.
