Plant family: scrophulariaceae


The figwort family counts many garden flowers among its members. Foxgloves, penstemons, and toadflax are but a few examples. Veronica is also listed in this family, although it is often put in its own family, veronicaceae.

I use the GRIN online query system to determine plant families. The list below shows the plants in my database listed as members of the scrophulariaceae family. Click on the botanical name of any plant to go to the plant portrait. For a list of all the plant families represented in our garden, see my families page.
