Typhaceae is the botanical name for a family of flowering plants. Such a family has been recognized by most taxonomists.

The APG II system, of 2003 (unchanged from the APG system, 1998), also recognizes this family, and assigns it to the order Poales in the clade commelinids, in the monocots. The family consists of one genus ("Typha"), totalling a dozen species, perennial plants of wet habitats.

The Cronquist system, of 1981, also recognized such a family and placed it in the order Typhales, in the subclass Commelinidae in class Liliopsida in division Magnoliophyta.

The Wettstein system, last update in 1935, placed the family in order Pandanales.

The most well-known member is probably Typha (bulrush or cattail). Members can be recognized as large marsh herbs with 2-ranked leaves and a brownish compact spike of unisexual flowers.
