Asteliaceae is the botanical name of a family of flowering plants. Such a family has not been recognized by many taxonomists.
The APG II system, of 2003 (unchanged from the APG system, of 1998), does recognize this family and places it in the order Asparagales, in the clade monocots. The family then includes a few genera with several dozen species, occurring in the Southern Hemisphere.
