Sepals almost free or basally connate , persistent . Petals free or connate. Stamens as many as petals in 1 series or 2 × as many in 2 series. Nectar scales at or near base of carpels. Follicles sometimes fewer than sepals, free or basally connate, erect or spreading , membranous or leathery, 1- to many seeded. Seeds small; endosperm scanty or not developed.

About 35 genera and over 1500 species: Africa, America, Asia, Europe; 13 genera (two endemic, one introduced ) and 233 species (129 endemic, one introduced) in China.
