Description: The genus Garrya - silktassel - consists of 14 New World species ranging from the Pacific Northwest to Panama (Dahling 1978). Only those in the United States and Mexico are considered here. Garrya is a highland genus occurring in chaparral and coniferous forests above lowland deserts, in semiarid regions, or in coastal or near-coastal conditions. Species may vary in size from low shrubs to trees (table 1). First discovered by David Douglas in the Pacific Northwest in 1826, Garrya was named in honor of Nicholas Garry, the first secretary of the Hudson Bay Company (Dahling 1978). Alternatively classified in Garryaceae and Cornaceae by various taxonomists, the genus will be classified as Garryaceae in this manual, after Dahling (1978) and Kartesz (1994).

Keywords: Garrya Dougl. ex Lindl., silktassel
