I would like to narrate some basic information about Family : Plumbaginaceae

Sea Lavender family

Herbaceous plants, shrubs and climbers

Dry and saline areas of the world

Leaves simple, alternate or in rosettes.

Flowers in branched clusters, spikes or heads. Bracts papery. Sepals 5 fused into tube and often papery, ribbed and coloured. Petals 5 fused into short or long tube. Stamens 5. Pistil with 5 styles. Ovary superior. Dry fruit with single seed. Flower color due to anthocyanin.

Leaves have chalk-glands. The glands are a key feature that allows members of the family to live in salty soils where most other species of plants cannot. The chalk-glands excrete calcareous salts dissolved in the water of the plant’s tissues. This excretion moves the salts out of the plant where they may crystallize or be washed away.

Latin word “Plumbum” means lead. :: Lead plants

BSI Mah. Flora mentions only 2 native species

Dyerophytum indicum

Plumbago zeylanica

Flowers of the Himalaya mentions only 2 sp.

Acantholimon lycopodioides

Ceratostigma ulicinum


Our next episode in June is expected to be another exciting display of members from families Plumbaginaceae, Primulaceae and Myrsinaceae, with so many beautiful Primula species in the Himalayas. Members are requested to organize their photographs for upload during the fortnight, from June 1 to 14.
Please do keep a uniform subject line for your uploads, and also indicate your serial number at the end of each subject line.
I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY EXPERT VOLUNTEERING TO COORDINATE THIS INTERESTING EPISODE. 


Thanks, … Myrsinacea​e is now under Primulacea​e.
In case, no expert coming forward, we may request …, to coordinate the episode though we are aware that he is very busy with very little time to spare.
I have already updated genera pages of these families in anticipation with lot of good material thrown in, which should help the members in their quest of correct Id.
Details as below (On clicking on genera pages one can see most of the species found in India with details, photos, keys etc.):
Genera under ‎Plumbaginaceae with details:
 ……………………………


Thanks a lot .. for useful information. Yes it would be very helpful if … is able to spare some time for this episode.


 

Plumbaginaceae : 1 post by 1 author.

I have updated all eFI (efloraofindia) genera pages on ‎Plumbaginaceae

Attempts have been made to incorporate most of the species available in India & nearby areas with details & keys directly or through links as far as possible.

Species discussed so far in efloraofindia are given at the bottom of the genera pages in the form of links against Subpages. On clicking them one can see all the details.

Any comments/ corrections are welcome.


Species, genera & family pages of‎‎‎Plumbaginaceae‎‎‎ are now with comparative images. On clicking the link of species, one can check the complete details.

May I request you to pl. go through & point out mistakes, if any. I hope this will aid in identifications in future. If anybody can send images of other species of this family (for incorporation in the website), if any, or can identify unidentified/ wrongly identified images, it will be really nice.
