The Solanales are an order of flowering plants, included in the asterid group of dicotyledons. Some older sources used the name Polemoniales for this order.
The following families are included here in newer systems such as that of the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group (APG):
* Family Solanaceae (nightshade family; includes Nolanaceae as well as potatoes, eggplants, tomatoes, peppers, tobacco, and petunias.)
The APG II classification treats the Solanales in the group Euasterids I.
Under the older Cronquist system, the latter three families were placed elsewhere, and a number of others were included:
* Family Duckeodendraceae (now treated as a synonym of Solanaceae)
* "Solanales". Integrated Taxonomic Information System. http://www.itis.gov/servlet/SingleRpt/SingleRpt?search_topic=TSN&search_value=500033.
