Tamarisk or saltcedar Tamarix aphylla, photographed by John Randall.

Belongs within: Gunneridae.
Contains: Nepenthes, Droseraceae, Plumbaginaceae, Polygonaceae, Cactineae, Phytolaccineae, Caryophyllaceae, Amaranthaceae, Chenopodiaceae.

The Caryophyllales were defined by Cantino et al. (2007) as the most exclusive clade containing Dianthus caryophyllus, Polygonum sachalinense, Simmondsia chinensis and Rhabdodendron amazonicum. This clade is well supported by molecular studies, but the only possible morphological synapomorphy so far identified is the presence of anthers with the outer parietal cells developing directly into the endothecium (Cantino et al. 2007).
