Maireana is a genus of around 57 species of perennial shrubs and herbs in the family Amaranthaceae which are endemic to Australia. Species in this genus were formerly classified within the genus Kochia. The genus was described in 1840 by the botanist, Moquin-Tandon and named to honour Joseph Fran├žois Maire (1780-1867), an amateur botanist who befriended him during the author's first visit to Paris in 1834.
