Malvaceae is a family of flowering plants that includes the mallows, cotton plants, okra plants, hibiscus, baobab[?] trees, and balsa trees. The family traditionally consists of about 1,500 species in 75 genera, but recent genetic work is calling the taxonomy into question, and it is likely that many of the groups will be moved around.
