Belongs within: Gentianidae.

The Garryales are an assemblage of trees, shrubs and lianas placed by molecular analyses as the basalmost lineage in the Garryidae ('euasterids I').

Characters (from Kårehed 2001): Woody, with simple leaves lacking stipules, mostly with penninerved leaves without hydathodes and serrations. Stomata usually cyclocytic. Flowers generally small, predominately pentamerous, with free, usually valvate petals; stamens usually isomerous, alternipetalous, free; anthers mostly introrse; ovules mostly with one locule and two pendent ovules, only one of which matures.
