Caprifoliaceae Family:

Triosteum perfoliatum (Perfoliate Tinker’s Weed) on 5-10-20, #697-53.

Caprifoliaceae Juss.


The plant family Caprifoliaceae was named and described by Antoine Laurent de Jussieu in Genera Plantarum in 1789.

The plant family Caprifoliaceae is commonly referred to as the honeysuckle family.

As of 12-13-22 when this page was last updated, Plants of the World Online lists 33 accepted genera in this family.

Dipsacus laciniatus (Cutleaf Teasel) on 7-12-19, #600-6.

Thank goodness I don’t have any Dipsacus laciniatus (Cutleaf Teasel) on my farm. I took photos of this species on a friend’s farm in 2019. I have noticed them growing along the highway in several areas. Not a good plant to have around as they can become quite invasive…


Scabiosa columbaria “Blue Note’ (Dwarf Pincushion) flowers on 6-10-18, #457-10.

I always liked these plants, so I was glad I found this Scabiosa columbaria ‘Blue Note’ (Dwarf Pincushion) at Lowe’s in 2018.


Triosteum perfoliatum (Perfoliate Tinker’s Weed) on 5-10-20, #697-51.

I stumbled upon a few Triosteum perfoliatum (Perfoliate Tinker’s Weed) while wildflower hunting in a friend’s secluded woods on May 10 in 2020. It is a neat wildflower and a great find.


Valerianella radiata/Valeriana woodsiana (Beaked Corn Salad) on 4-23-20, #690-104.

I first found Valerianella radiata/Valeriana woodsiana (Beaked Corn Salad) north of the chicken house in 2020. I found it in two other areas in 2021 and 2022. Although every other database and website says Valerianella radiata (L.) Dufr. is the accepted scientific name, Plants of the World Online by Kew says the name has changed to Valeriana woodsiana (Torr. & A.Gray) Christenh. & Byng. The original publication details for the change was published in 2018 and has raised a lot of controversy. The book includes name changes for a few thousand species and the merging of the Valerianella genus into Valeriana

That’s it for now… I have pages for two Lonicera (Honeysuckle) species to add when I get their pages published.
