  1. Polygonaceae

    The Polygonaceae are a family of flowering plants known informally as the knotweed family or smartweed—buckwheat family in the United States. The name is based on the genus Polygonum, and was first used by Antoine Laurent de Jussieu in 1789 in his book, Genera Plantarum. The name refers to the many swollen nodes the stems of some species have. It is derived from Greek; poly means many and goni means knee or joint. The Polygonaceae comprise about 1200 species distributed into about 50 genera. The largest genera are Eriogonum, Rumex, Coccoloba, Persicaria and Calligonum. The family is present worldwide, but is most diverse in the North Temperate Zone. Several species are cultivated as ornamentals. A few species of Triplaris provide lumber. The fruit of the sea grape is eaten, and in Florida, jelly is made from it and sold commercially. The seeds of two species of Fagopyrum, known as buckwheat, provide grain. The petioles of rhubarb are a food item. The leaves of the common sorrel are eaten in salads or as a potherb.
