Broadleaf Griselinia littoralis, photographed by Jon Sullivan.

Belongs within: Gentianidae.
Contains: Pittosporaceae, Araliaceae, Apiaceae.

The Apiales is an order of flowering plants within the asterid clade. The clade is mainly supported by molecular analyses, but members do have some shared morphological features.

Characters (from Kårehed 2003): Flowers choripetalous, corollas developing from ring primordium (early sympetaly) (at least in Apiaceae, Araliaceae and Pittosporaceae). Stamens with free filaments (occasionally basally connate in Pittosporaceae), anthers opening by longitudinal slits (sometimes from apical pore in Pittosporaceae). Ovules anatropous, unitegmic.
