- n. A genus of gamopetalous plants, of the order Campanulaceæ. It is distinguished from the type genus Campanula by densely corymbose flowers with narrowly tubular corollas slightly three-cleft at the apex. The 4 or 5 species are all natives of the Mediterranean region. They are perennial herbs or undershrubs, with tall stems bearing panicled corymbs of very numerous blue flowers, or in one species producing numerous short stems with the flower-clusters somewhat umbellate. T. cæruleum is cultivated for its flowers, under the name of throatwort.
