The Heath Family (Ericaceae) is mainly made up of woody
shrubs that can be small like the heathers or large like
rhododendrons. They have simple undivided leaves
which are usually arranged alternately on the stem. In
most species the stamens release pollen through a
small opening or pore at the tip of the pollen sac instead
of splitting open.
