Annual, perennial herb, shrub, vine. Leaf: simple or compound, cauline (or most basal), alternate or opposite; stipules 0. Inflorescence: cymes, heads, clusters, or flower 1; bracts in involucres or not. Flower: sepals generally 5, fused at base, translucent membrane generally connecting lobes, torn by fruit; corolla generally 5-lobed, radial or bilateral, salverform to bell-shaped, throat often well defined; stamens generally 5, epipetalous, attached at >= 1 level, filaments of >= 1 length, pollen white, yellow, blue, or red; ovary superior, chambers generally 3, style 1, stigmas generally 3. Fruit: capsule. Seed: 1–many, when wetted swelling or not, gelatinous or not.
26 genera, 314 species: America, northern Europe, northern Asia; some cultivated (Cantua, Cobaea (cup-and-saucer vine), Collomia, Gilia, Ipomopsis, Linanthus, Phlox). [Porter & Johnson 2000 Aliso 19:55–91] Leptodactylon moved to Linanthus. —Scientific Editors: Robert Patterson, Thomas J. Rosatti.
Key to Polemoniaceae
Stem: erect, ascending or decumbent, glabrous, hairy, or glandular. Leaf: simple, generally alternate, tips acute, acuminate, or mucronate; basal generally in rosette, entire, toothed, or 1–2-pinnate-lobed; cauline generally reduced. Inflorescence: flowers 1–3 in bract axils. Flower: calyx membranous between lobes, lobes < tube, membranes glandular, splitting or expanding in fruit; corolla > calyx, lobes generally < tube, generally ovate, acute, acuminate. Fruit: spheric to ovoid; chambers 3; valves separating from top. Seed: 3–many, yellow to brown, not gelatinous when wet.Key to Aliciella
± 25 species: western North America. (Alice Eastwood, western American botanist, 1859–1953) [Porter 1998 Aliso 17:23–46]
Unabridged etymology: (Alice Eastwood, curator in herbarium, California Academy of Sciences, 1859–1953)
Annual. Stem: 7–23 cm, branches ascending, 1–several, thread-like, glandular-puberulent. Leaf: basal 1–6 cm, lanceolate or widely linear, toothed or lobed, lobes rounded, mucronate, generally < leaf axis width; cauline linear, entire. Flower: calyx 2–3 mm, lobe tips thickened; corolla 4–7 mm, tube 1.5–3 × calyx, thread-like, purple, throat yellow, lobes truncate-acuminate, white adaxially, purple abaxially; stamens, style ± exserted, pollen white. Fruit: 3–5 mm, = calyx, narrowly ellipsoid. Seed: many.
