Caryophyllaceae Family:

Caryophyllaceae Juss.

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

As of 3-3-21 when I last updated this page, Plants of the World Online lists 98 genera in the family commonly known as the Pink or Carnation family. 

The family consists of herbaceous perennials and annuals, shrubs, and small trees.
