Annual to tree, glandular or not. Leaf: simple to palmately or pinnately compound, generally alternate; stipules free to fused (0), persistent to deciduous. Inflorescence: cyme, raceme, panicle, cluster, or flowers 1; bractlets on pedicel ("pedicel bractlets") generally 0–3(many), subtended by bract or generally not. Flower: generally bisexual, radial; hypanthium free or fused to ovary, saucer- to funnel-shaped, subtending bractlets ("hypanthium bractlets") 0–5, alternate sepals; sepals generally 5; petals generally 5, free; stamens (0,1)5–many, anther pollen sacs generally 2; pistils (0)1–many, simple or compound, ovary superior to inferior, styles 1–5. Fruit: 1–many per flower, achene (fleshy-coated or not), follicle, drupe, or pome with generally papery core, occasionally drupe-like with 1–5 stones. Seed: generally 1–5 (per fruit, not per flower).
110 genera, ± 3000 species: worldwide, especially temperate; many cultivated for ornamental, fruit, especially Cotoneaster, Fragaria, Malus, Prunus, Pyracantha, Rosa, Rubus. [Potter et al. 2007 Plant Syst Evol 266:5–43] Number of teeth is per leaf or leaflet, not per side of leaf or leaflet, except in Drymocallis. —Scientific Editors: Daniel Potter, Thomas J. Rosatti.

Key to Rosaceae
Shrub, ± hairy. Leaf: simple, alternate, toothed; stipules 0. Inflorescence: raceme or panicle, terminal, many-flowered, persistent; pedicels slender, bractlets 1–3, linear. Flower: hypanthium saucer-shaped, prominent nectary-disk below inner rim, bractlets 0; petals generally white; stamens 15–20; pistils 5, ovaries superior, 2-ovuled, hairs dense, bristle-like, persistent in fruit, style persistent, stigma ± 2-lobed. Fruit: achenes 5.
3–5 species: western North America, Central America, northern South America. (Greek: whole disk)
Plant 0.3–6 m. Stem: bark ± red, in age gray, shredding; twigs glabrous to hairy, occasionally glandular. Leaf: 0.3–8 cm, ovate to obovate, strong-veined abaxially, glabrous to hairy, occasionally glandular, teeth entire to compound; base truncate to wedge-shaped; petiole distinct or not. Inflorescence: 2–25 cm, 1.5–25 cm wide. Flower: hypanthium 3–5 mm wide; sepals 1–2 mm; petals 1.5–2 mm; style 1 mm. Fruit: achenes 1–1.5 mm, often with sessile glands. [Holodiscus saxicola A. Heller] Highly variable; varieties intergrade. [Online Interchange]Key to Holodiscus discolor
Unabridged note: Highly variable; varieties intergrade, especially. var. discolor and var. microphyllus. Intermediate plants from High Sierra Nevada, East of Sierra Nevada, described as Holodiscus saxicola A. Heller, Holodiscus boursieri (Carrière) Rehder, do not merit taxonomic status.
Plant 1.5–6 m, ± open. Stem: twigs hairy, glands 0. Leaf: petiole 2–15 mm; blade 1.5–8 cm, ovate to elliptic, hairs sparse adaxially, dense abaxially, teeth toothed, base generally truncate to rounded. Inflorescence: 5–25 cm, 5–25 cm wide; branches generally many.
