Rosaceae - Rose Family
The rose family has flowers with five separate petals and sepals, many stamens, and five to many pistils. The sepals, petals, and stamens are attached to the edge of a floral cup within which the pistils are located. In wild strawberry and tail cinquefoil, the numerous pistils are arranged in the center of the flower. Rosa is different in having an inferior ovary with the individual styles producing a dense brush in the center of the flower. The leaves are usually compound.
