  1. Hypoxidaceae

    Hypoxidaceae is the botanical name of a family of flowering plants, placed in the order Asparagales of the monocots. The family has only recently been recognized by taxonomists. The APG III system of 2009 does recognize this family. The family consists of probably over half-a-dozen genera totalling some one hundred to two hundred species. The members of the family are small to medium herbs, with grass-like leaves and an invisible stem, modified into a corm or a rhizome. The flowers are born on leafless shoots, also called scapes. The flowers are trimerous, radially symmetric. The ovary is inferior, developing into a capsule or a berry.
