Bignoniaceae

Bignoniaceae is a family of plants from the order of Lamiales. They also call it the Bignonias. Most species are woody trees, shrubs, and vines and they are mostly tropical. Jacaranda is probably one of the most well-known and popular species. This family includes about 85 genera with about 841 accepted species. Antoine Laurent de Jussieu first validly published this family in Genera Plantarum, in 1789. It was also published by Linnaeus in 1753. Joseph Pitton de Tournefort (1656-1708), the French botanist, named the family after Jean-Paul Bignon (1662-1743), the French statesman and librarian to Louis XIV.

Species have leaves that are opposite or whorled and are usually pinnately compound. The species in the Bignoniaceae family usually have bisexual and zygomorphic flowers. The seeds are capsular containing winged seeds, occasionally wingless.

The largest group of species is Bignonieae which includes mostly lianas. Many of the plants are from South America.

About Online Flower Garden & Dino

I am a flower enthusiast and a gardener at heart. Ever since childhood I loved reading about plants and started gardening at an early age. First by helping my father in the garden and later managing a large garden myself in my teen years. I planted and cared for a large number of plants, flowers, and trees both outdoors and in a greenhouse. To this day I enjoy visiting gardens and parks and learning about new and old specimens and varieties of plants.
