Family Hydrangeaceae within the Kingdom Plantae classification are seed plants that produce flowers. Flowering plants are also known as angiosperms. Hydrangeaceae are a subset of Order Rosales or flowering plants under Subclass Rosidae. Family Hydrangeaceae encompasses around 11 genera, with botanists separating the group into two and placing 7 genera into a separate family called Philadelphaceae. Hydrangeaceae include species of woody ornamental trees, shrubs, vines, and herbs. Some examples are Hydrangea (hydrangea), and Philadelphus (mock orange or sweet syringa) which are popular garden ornamental plants.

Kingdom Plantae Guide
Kingdom Plantae is the domain classification assigned by Biologists to cover all living plants on earth. The taxonomy of kingdom plantae is based on the plant similarities and differences. The Plant Kingdom is also called know as Kingdom Metaphyta. The plant kingdom includes all types of eukaryotic, multicellular, photosynthetic plants found in this biosphere. The history of life on earth and the success of many organisms literally depend on the success of plants.
Biology Kingdom Taxonomy
In biology, Kingdom is the second highest ranking taxonomy category after Domain. Kingdom groups together all forms of life which have certain fundamental characteristics in common. Biologists adapted a five-kingdom classification scheme to separate and assign living organisms into the following separate groups: animals (Kingdom Animalia), plants (Kingdom Plantae), fungi (Kingdom Fungi), protozoa and eucaryotic algae (Kingdom Protista), and bacteria and blue-green algae (Kingdom Monera).
What is a Plant?
A plant is one of the five groups into which all living organisms are traditionally divided into. A plant is a stationery living organism and as such needs to absorb nutrients from its surroundings in order to grow and survive. Typically plants have roots which are the organs of a plant that normally lie below the surface of the soil; however there are some types of plants which do have aerial roots. Within the scientific classification chart plants belong to the Plantae family.
