The Staff Vine family in Finland is comprised of one genus and one species: grass of Parnassus. Before current research and the changes that followed, grass of Parnassus’s genus Parnassia was a member of its own Parnassiaceae family, which contained only 2 genera, one of which contained only a single species. Genus Parnassia has a total of around 60 species. Globally, the Staff Vine family is comprised of around 80 genera comprised of about 1,000 species, mainly trees, bushes and climbing plants. Of these, genus Euonymus will be familiar to some Finns as garden bushes (and trees).
