Shrubs or perennial herbs. Leaves simple, entire, without stipules; flowers, hermaphroditic or unisexual, the floral tube appears to be a calyx or corolla, but is actually a hollow receptacle (unique to Thymelaeaceae); the sepals are mounted on the rim of the floral tube. Stamens, usually once or twice the number of calyx lobes, if twice, then they often occur in 2 well separated series; the ovary is positioned superior, 1-2-locular; fruit, a 1-seeded berry or an achene.
