• Magnoliophyta
  • Phylum Magnoliophyta

    Almost every plant that gardeners display in their garden are members of this taxonomy: the Angiosperms. Scientifically, this group is often refered to as the Angiospermae or the Magnoliophyta. However, because of the confusion in standardization at these higher levels, we’re just going to talk generally.

    A quick video overview

    To help give you a broad understanding of the Angiosperms, we made a short video for you about classifying these plants.
