Polygalaceae (milkwort family)
The Fabales are an order of flowering plants, included in the rosid group of dicotyledons. The families given at right are typical of newer classifications. Under the older Cronquist system, the subfamilies of the Fabaceae were promoted to families. The other families now treated here were placed in separate orders: the Polygalaceae within the Polygalales, and the others within the Rosales.
