Identifying Brassicaceae: the Cabbage family

Ros Bennett
Tuesday 3 June 2014

Brassicaceae (Cruciferae) is a large family of plants that includes cabbages, cauliflowers, broccoli and horseradish as well as common garden plants such as honesty, stocks and wallflowers. While the simple cross-shaped flowers they support are all rather similar in form, the other structures, especially leaves, hairs and fruit, are extremely variable and full of fascination. Using plants from the Botanic Garden, explore this interesting family in more detail with botanist Ros Bennett.
