Convolvulaceae Juss.


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

As of 3-5-21 when I last updated this page, Plants of the World Online by Kew lists 59 genera in this family. It is commonly referred to as the bindweed or morning glory family. It contains vines, trees, shrubs, and herbs.
