Gladioli (Gladiolus sp)
The genus Gladiolus consists of 260 species, 250 of which being native to sub-Saharan Africa, mostly South Africa, from were they were imported in large quantities to Europe during the 18th century. Only about 10 species are native to Eurasia. Interestingly, the great majority of the more than 10,000 named Gladioli cultivars are believed to be derived from just seven species native to South Africa. In the UK, the corms were used in traditional medicine for making a poultice for drawing out thorns and splinters, and the powdered corms mixed with goat's milk, were reputedly used to soothe the symptoms of colic.
