There are 14 families in Order Myrtales with about 10,400 species. Most
are trees or shrubs that grow in tropical and sub-tropical parts of the
world. There are no representatives in very cold areas. Large trees like
the Australian Eucalyptus species belong in this order. Some families in
this order have non-woody (herbaceous) members, like the Evening Primroses
and Loosestrifes. There are a few species that produce edible fruits, like
the pomegranate pictured here.
