This family contains around 500 species in 36 different genera. They are found worldwide, with many coming from northern temperate regions. They are mainly perennial herbs and shrubs, some evergreen, with only a few annuals or small trees. As well as the type plant, the tiny Saxifrage, the Family includes many common garden plants, including Hydrangea, Astilbe, Bergenia, Heuchera, Deutzia and Escallonia. Some soft fruits (currants and gooseberries) used to be included in this Family, but have now been separated into a new Family, Grossulariaceae.
