The torus is flat, convex or concave, forming variously shaped hypantites - panic, spider, spherical, trumpet or other forms formed by the adhesion of the torus with the base of the sepals and the base of the stamen stems. The perianth usually consists of a calyx and a crown, sometimes the crown is missing or the calyx is double. Stamens usually 5. Petals 5, less often 4, 6, 8 or more, sometimes missing. Stamens 2 - 3 or 4 times more than sepals or are in an indefinite number. Carpellums one to many, free or co-mingled with each other, sometimes with a hatch, upper, lower or half-length, depending on the degree of adhesion. The styles are free, less sophisticated. Fruit bubbles, walnuts, boxes, stoneware, stone, non-essential strawberry. The fruits of the seeds have different attachments for wind and animal distribution.
