Muskroot Family, Adoxaceae
The Muskroot family has 5 genera and around 200 species and is thus quite a small family in a global context. Having said that, however, 3 of the family’s genera are represented in Finland: the type genus’s moschatel (Adoxa moschatellina), guelder-rose from genus Viburnum and alpine elder from genus Sambucus. These bushes were previously classed as members of the Honeysuckle family (Caprifoliaceae).
