Kattully (Crinum Latifolium Amaryllidaceae)


The Indian species Crinum latifolium (L.) was traditionally used to treat rheumatism, fistula, tumors, earaches, rubefacient, tubercle and whitlow. In Vietnamese and Chinese traditional medicine Crinum latifolium preparations are used until nowadays because of their antiviral and antitumor properties.

Crinum latifolium is a herbaceous perennial flowering plant in the amaryllis family (Amaryllidaceae). It arises from an underground bulb. The flowering stems are stout, reaching about 2 m in height. The leaves are long, linear and ligulate. The flowers are white and arranged in an umbel.[3][4] It grows naturally in Asia, from India and Sri Lanka through much of mainland Southeast Asia to south China (GuangxiGuizhouYunnan). It is also reportedly naturalized in the West Indies and in the Chagos Archipelago.[5]
