Shrubs, erect or scanclent^ or small trees {Adoxa, a herb), brauches round. aves opposite, rarely 3-nate; stipulate or not. Flowers hermaphrodite, mose or panicled, capitate in Adoxa, regular or irregular. Qdyx-tube aJnate the ovary ; limb 3-o-toothed or -lobed. Corolla gamopetalous ; limb often

2-lipped, 5-lobed, lobes imbricate in bud. Stamens 5 (in Adoxa 8-12), on the corolla alternate with its lobes. Ovary inferior (in Adoxa ^-inferior), 2-8- rarely 1-celled ; style long, with capitate "stigraa, or short, 2-5-lobed ; ovules solitary, pendulous, or several on axile placentas. Fruit a drupe (in Abelia dry), with 1-8 cartilaginous pyrenes, or a many-seeded berry. Seeds 1 or many in each cell, albumen copious fleshy; embryo usually minute. Species 200; mostly Noi'thern, with a few Australian and S. American.

Distinguished from Fubiacca chiefly by habit and the frcqiTcntly irregular flowers and rarity of stipules.
