Description of Gloriosa superba:

Gloriosa superba is a striking tuberous climbing plant with wavy-edged yellow and red flowers found throughout India. The cylindrical rhizomes usually bifurcate to 'V' shape. The acuminate tips of the leaves spiraled and serve as tendrils for climbing. The perianth lobes are brightly colored and wavy margined. Colchicine is the major compound isolated from the rhizomes. They have abortifacient, antipyretic, anti-inflammatory and antileprotic properties. In Ayurveda, the tuber is anthelmintic and abortifacient. Kalihari is cultivated mainly in south India.
