Eudicots are a second major group of flowering plants. They have ‘tricolpate’ pollen grains with three grooves along their polar axis. The yellow flowers of Knowltonia are followed by attractive black fleshy fruits. Leaves and roots cause a strong allergic reaction which raises blisters, hence the common name ‘blisterleaf’.
