  • Eucomis (Family Hyacinthaceae) are deciduousgeophytes with long, narrow leaves and erect, densely packed flower spikes. Thebulbs are greatly valued in traditional medicine for the treatment of a variety ofailments, and are thus heavily harvested for trade in South Africa's traditional herbal markets. Eucomis species propagaterelatively slowly from offsets and seed, and this, together with theirover-utilisation ethnopharmacologically, has led to their threatened status.
