Polemoniaceae Family:

Polemoniaceae Juss.

The plant family Polemoniaceae was named and described as such by Antione Laurent de Jussieu in Genera Plantarum in 1789.

As of 3-15-21 when I last updated this page, Plants of the World Online by Kew lists 29 genera in the family. It is commonly known as the Jacob’s Ladder or Phlox Family and includes annual and perennial species native to the Northern Hemisphere and South America.

So far, the only species in this family I am familiar with is the Phlox divaricata. You can click on the name under the caption under the photo to view its page.

Below are a few links for further reading about the family. The numbers may not be the same, as far as genera and species are concerned, but we are all a work in progress. 🙂
