Species from Amaryllis Family, Amaryllidaceae: 7

Amaryllis Family, Amaryllidaceae

Both cultivated and feral bulb plants, e.g. chives, were traditionally classed in a family of their own (the Garlic family (Alliaceae)) but the new classification system (APG III in 2009), whose logic this web site follows, has shaken up the old order quite dramatically and created a subfamily Allioideae for the Amaryllis family. This sub-family contains around 900 species globally and 6 in Finland. A total of over 2,000 species of feral monocotyledonous Amaryllis family plants are grouped into 80 genera, which include a few to Finns familiar, early spring blooming garden plants such as daffodils and snowdrops.
